I photographed this room at Pennhurst State School on one of my Abandon America workshops. It is one of those places that is very, very eerie and I love photographing the buildings there. The vintage image of the girl is a tintype from my collection that I colorized in Photoshop. The Raggedy Ann doll was on the couch in that exact location (I don’t move things around when I shoot abandoned places). The sky is a combination of a sky I photographed on a stormy day down at Kensico Dam and a sky I purchased with a tutorial from Phlearn.
I used textures to create the mood from the wonderful Dirk Wuestenhagen, Shadowhouse Creations and my own created from peeling walls at Pennhurst. Flypaper textures in a preset from Nic Color Efex Pro filters were also used. In short, I used a lot of textures to get the mood I wanted. A Fuji X-T1 was used to photograph the room at Pennhurst.
