Follow a Photographer As He Explores a Decaying Abandoned Prison

Part of the joy of photography is visiting unique places and experiencing something while you document it. In an episode of the web series Roaming Focus, photographer Mike Palmer visits a creepy and run down abandoned prison.

Palmer had to take a canoe and head down the Wanapitei River in northern Ontario to reach Burwash Correctional Center, a prison that shut down in 1973. The snappy, polished video features Palmer commenting on his encounters, his gear, and his techniques. Some of the descriptions are a bit basic, like what HDR is, but it's a fun little romp through an incredible location nonetheless. [Youtube via Imaging Resource]
