Sci-Fi Decay. Long Exposure Lightpainting In An Abandoned 19th Century Fort.


Good Morning Steem :)

Headed out again on Saturday with Paul and Marc and Phil to shoot at a place we have all been too before and love for the history, an abandoned 19th century fort.

It was erected between 1863 and 1871 as a semi-circular arc with 22 casemates, to be armed with five twelve-inch guns, seventeen ten-inch guns and five nine-inch guns. The actual installed armament rather differed from this. In 1902 the RML guns were replaced by two 9.2-inch and two six-inch BL guns, and before the First World War the walls were further strengthened with substantial earthwork embankments.

The fort was being developed into flats, but I believe apart from actually owning the place very little work took place.

Here I’ve utilised the decay and scaffolding, with my camera rotation tool, to create something slightly otherworldly.

I’ve also used a blue torch, calligraphy tool and a little steel wool, laser and a stencil for these shots.

I’ve included a set up shot so you can see the actual scene that was rotated to get an idea of how derelict this place is unfortunately.

We even encountered a group of paranormal investigators whilst we were there, who turned up to explore the place themselves and contact the other-side I guess.

I can honestly say we didn’t see anything other than each other and it was a superb evening hanging out with the guys again creating art.

Have a great day
