Portraits In An Abandoned School Building In Atlanta Georgia

I had the chance to work with Lydia to create some portraits that were a little commercial focused and had a mix of a horror movie like feel to them. Since it is October and that means Halloween, it seemed very fitting. We chose an abandoned building in Atlanta to use as our scene. We then made our way around the old building carefully avoiding minor dangers like nails, glass, loose floors, and other things. I explore a lot of abandoned locations as a personal hobby. I know, weird hobby, but I love the old history, decay, and architecture. Plus, it’s a great adventure and normally ends up in another cool location to add to my shoot list. Anyways, I was surprised not to find any needles or other drug paraphernalia except some old beer cans and whiskey bottles.  Red hair girl in red dress standing on theatre stage with blue graffiti in abandoned Atlanta school

I really liked this particular building because it offered a great deal in the way of different looks to the environments. Diversity in locations is always awesome. It also offered a lot of great natural light to use and mix with off-camera lighting to create really nice dramatic looks which I particularly love. We got lucky with some interesting graffiti including the word FEAR randomly written on one of the walls in a hallway. It played in nicely with the horror movie feel of the images. Here are a few of my personal favorites I think are boo-rific!  Red hair girl in red dress standing on theatre stage in abandoned Atlanta school Red hair girl in red dress sitting on chair in green vines in abandoned Atlanta school Red hair girl in red dress standing in creepy dark hallway with yellow sunlight shinning through in abandoned Atlanta school Red hair girl in red dress sitting on broken cement stairs in creepy blue hallway and yellow sunlight in abandoned Atlanta school Red hair girl in red dress walking down broken cement stairs in creepy hallway in abandoned Atlanta school Red hair girl in red dress in creepy dark hallway with yellow sunlight and FEAR written on wall in abandoned Atlanta school Red hair girl in red dress looking down leaning against peeling paint wall window in abandoned Atlanta school Red hair girl pulling leather jacket collar over face in abandoned Atlanta school Red hair girl in sheer shirt leaning against tree in abandoned Atlanta school Girl with red hair touching shoulder in sheer white shirt in abandoned school portraits abandoned building
