Gear: DSLR + nifty fifty
Location: Leuven (B) Sint-Pieters hospital
Location: The Sint-Pieters hospital is located in the centre of Leuven.
Tip: To challenge yourself, only take one prime lens with you. I took my”nifty-fifty” lens (Canon 50mm f1.8 MKI). –> everybody should have this lens.
Note: I call it semi-urbex because I did not enter any building. The outside was OK for me.
A big glass cube in front of the city office of Leuven gives this reflection. The rain drops are a bonus
Location: Station of Leuven(B)
Some colorful buildings add some extra psychedelic effect to it (oops, I was just listening Pink Floyd’s early days music)
and the x-mas lights were a bonus.
An old building, broken blinds and a damp window.
However, it can still be a perfect subject to take your camera and push the button.
That’s what I did.
I hope you like it too.
The plastic 50mm at f2.8 gives a perfect DOF with still enough sharpness and a fully blurred background (at a lower “f” the lens has some softness which may be disturbing for some subjects)
By adding contrast it will enhance the cold and warm colors. Also the reflection will become a bit stronger.
