Fort Mifflin turned out to be a great place to shoot. I ended up with quite a few shots, and can fill this blog for weeks with images. As we approach the halloween season, I think it’s safe to say that these types of images are justified in quantity.

For this shot I knew I wanted to compose it differently. I normally would set up to shoot this head on, but here I knew I wanted to be closer to the wall. I thought the sharp texture and depth of field, would lead your eyes better into the softer tunnel like scene.  Shooting in portrait view also allowed for a more dramatic and exaggerated roundness to the image.  Next time you are shooting in a tunnel, try moving against the wall and playing with your focal point and aperture settings.  It will leave you with some creative options.

Gregg - I like your compositional choice on this. It places the viewer in a perspective where they can appreciate the curvature of the tunnel and the darkness and grittiness of the walls. I would imagine it would give someone with claustrophobia the willies and to solicit an emotion like that with a photo is a very good thing.
