More from the A. Finkl factory tour from last week. As you can probably tell from the past couple of years, I like to shoot images of huge, open spaces with lots of detail. Indeed, I am a great admirer of the work of the manufactured landscapes of Edward Burtynsky. For me, due to the long exposures required, most of these shots are restricted to images taken of abandoned or closed buildings--in other words, spaces that are not really in-use or at least appear that way. This shot is different to me because it is, quite apparently, in use. Here is where cast or formed ingots and shafts are stored prior to hardness testing or shipping.

Despite the fact that there is a lot of detail revealed here if you look at the full-size image, I still crave the ability to capture more detail with more tonal range. I have lately been experimenting with large-format photography... and I am looking to complete a 4X5 view camera setup in the coming months. I wonder if they would let me drag that thing in here!

Oh, and I am adding a new category here called "Industry" to the catalog. I have to update some of the entries to fill in some of the space, and that will be forthcoming soon. Thanks for visiting!
