This past weekend I had the extreme privilege of shooting at the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, Ohio. Yes, this is the very location where they did filming for The Shawshank Redemption. Words just can’t describe (at least none that I can muster) the intensity of this place. At times it was hard to concentrate on shooting with all the history, rumors and just general vibe of the place swirling around in my head. These were all shot with my D90 and 85mm f/1.8, I do have some images shot with my Nikon F2 that should be off to the lab later this week, so stay tuned.
A special thanks go out to Shelby, Kacey, Ryan and Corey for gracing my lens this weekend. I hope you will do the same next year!
