Chris Crawford I am pleased to announced a long time member has agreed to help and mentor others in photographic technique. As he has long done so, perhaps this forum is a bit overdue. Christopher Crawford has been a professional artist and photographer for 20 years, most of that time spent documenting life in northern Indiana with his photographs and the stories that he writes to accompany them. In addition, Chris also creates tutorials where he teaches photography techniques, film processing, digital editing, film scanning, and printing. Ask Chris your technical questions, or to critique your photos. You can see more of his tutorials at http://crawfordphotoschool.com

Thank you to everyone who looked at and commented on my photos of the old General Electric factory in Fort Wayne. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I was so happy to be able to get those photos!

For those who haven't seen them, I posted them on the previous page (page 54) of this thread.

You can also see them here:

Beautiful images from the old GE buildings! I just started myself trying to get in contact with a local very large factory near me that is shutting down to see if I can get some time in there... I'm not expecting much but seeing those gave me the push to reach out.

I hope they let you in to photograph. GE would never have let me, or anyone else, in. Its only because someone else owns the property now that we were allowed in.

I'm going today to photograph the beginning of demolition work on the high school I graduated from in 1994. It was closed by the local school system in 2010 and is now going to be demolished. The school system, which I worked for as a high school English teacher, would never have let me do that, either, but they sold the school and the new owners are happy to let me photograph.

Just got an email back explaining that if I wanted to use their trademark I would need to fill out a form.. They obviously didn't bother to read my email thoroughly to understand my request. Now I need to do some digging to find actual personal emails of people to see if I can get in contact with an actual person that works there.

That's really interesting that both of these have come from new owners being cool with you coming in for photos of the place. I look forward to seeing if you post the new photos from the school!!

This stop sign is on the corner of Pennsylvania Road and 25th Street in Indianapolis, Indiana. Someone has put a sticker on the sign, under the word STOP, so that it now says "Stop And Kiss."

I photographed it Saturday afternoon.

Someone must have a hidden video cam pointed at that spot.

Took a look at the GE photos. Reminds me of some of the places I worked out of on the railroad, especially the wood block floors. You've captured the feeling of those places quite well. I've got one of those "Union Yes!" stickers around here somewhere.

There was a rainstorm at dusk on the evening of May 31, 2018 in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

I made a series of photographs of the gathering storm clouds in the sky, using the shapes of the clouds and colors in the sky to create a series of six abstract photographs.

Elmhurst Church Of The Nazarene is a small church built of limestone on Sandpoint Road in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The church is down the street from my house, in the neighborhood where I grew up.

I photographed it a few days ago at dusk, so that the lighted cross at the top of the church's facade, made of glass bricks, would show up well.

These electric power pylons were built in 2017 across this field on the southwest corner of Lower Huntington Road and Coverdale Road in rural Allen County, Indiana.

I photographed them on one of the foggiest mornings that I have ever seen. The black spots on the power lines are small birds!

This is near the long driveway that led back to an abandoned farmhouse that was demolished at the beginning of 2018.

This cellphone tower is on the east side of US-33, between Washington Center Road and Merchant Road, in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

I photographed it at sunset. The light and the color of the sky was changing rapidly. The two photos were made just about 5 minutes apart but look very different!

I made these two photographs of the sky right after I photographed the cellphone tower in my previous post. These two were just a couple minutes apart, but the sky has changed a lot in that short interval.

I love photographing the sky and clouds. It's always something new. Throw in a secondary subject and the pictures can sing. Good stuff here!

A few weeks ago, this Marge Simpson scarecrow appeared in one of the plots at the Fort Wayne Community Garden on Bluffton Road, across the street from the intersection of Bluffton Road and Sandpoint Road.

Strangely, the scarecrow has an old, broken, dirty, doll baby hanging from her left hand!

The Community Garden is operated by the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department. They rent out garden plots to city residents who want a garden, but don't have the space for one.

This is the entrance to Lindi's Restaurant on Main Street in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana. The restaurant just opened last week.

I thought that the front entrance was funny because they painted the light projected by the light above the door onto the front of the building with yellow paint!

The restaurant is owned by Lindi Miller, a chef who has owned several restaurants in Fort Wayne over the years. I photographed it in the evening shortly before sunset.

Painting the cone of light was clever! It frames the door and makes it more special.

Yeah, I wouldn't have noticed the place at all if it hadn't been for that painted on 'light.' The building is an ugly industrial-looking cinderblock building that has sat empty for years after the office furniture store that used to be there closed up.

On the day after Memorial Day, I went shopping at the Kroger store at The Village At Coventry shopping center in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I was amused to see several American flags adorning this table and signs advertising that the store was hiring.

This 122 year old brick building was originally on the west side of Harrison Street, north of Superior Street, in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana. In January, 2018, it was moved to the northeast corner of Superior Street and Harrison Street. This location is where I photographed it.

The move is temporary, so the building is still sitting on the carriage that moved it. It will later be moved across Superior Street, where it will become a new Hallís Restaurant. Hallís is a local restaurant chain.

The building was originally called the E.M. Baltes Company building, and later was known as the Cambray Building. It is being moved to make way for Fort Wayne's new riverfront park.

Scout is one of the two cats at Hyde Brothers Books in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She looked annoyed because the little boy at the end of the aisle was running around and making noise, despite his mother's efforts to calm him.

Hyde Brothers is an incredible locally-owned used book store on Wells Street in Fort Wayne. As long as I can remember, they've always had at least one cat in residence.

I knew they could do this with frame buildings, but I'm astounded it can be done with a brick building. All that weight, and the possibility of the bricks falling apart! I'm very impressed. I wish I could have been there to see how they got it onto the carriage. Chris, maybe you could be there to document how they will get it off the carriage!

i'm going to try to. I didn't know about it until it had been put on the carriage and moved to the place it is sitting now. Its supposed to be moved again later this year.

I'm still working through my backlog of work waiting to be edited.

These basketball hoops and backboards were being sold back in January by the company that is demolishing Elmhurst High school in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

I graduated from Elmhurst in 1994. The school, which opened in 1929, was closed in 2010 and is being demolished now.

I really like this, Chris.


Perfect for square composition. The building looks massive, static, and immobile against a blue sky. The even lighting adds to its sense of solidity, too. Then you look down and see that the massive building is no longer anchored to the ground, no longer truly static or immobile. That realization comes with a bit of a jolt.

Another photograph from back in January when fixtures from my old high school were sold off in preparation for the school's demolition.

Hall lockers were sold in sets of eight.

Classroom doors at the pre-demolition sale at Elmhurst High School in Fort Wayne. This happened back in January; the school is being demolished now.

You could buy a door for $25!

No one can tell which camera was used for what. Those who obsess the most over gear do so because they are desperate for a magic cure that will make their photographs 'great.' The problem is, that is something that must come from within.
Yeah I suppose you're right which raises a perennial question. Reading about your recent move to m43 made me wonder whether you still do film photography - b&w perhaps? - and if so what role does film play in your photography? Great photographs by the way. Collectively your work is an impressive document on your homeplace.

Collectively your work is an impressive document on your homeplace.

I stopped shooting color film in 2011 and switched to digital for my color work. The reason was that I went on a month-long trip to New Mexico that summer and shot 40 rolls of color transparency film, E-6 film. I hadn't shot any color in a while at that point, had been shooting mostly BW, which I could develop myself. I found that there was not one single E-6 lab left anywhere in the state of Indiana (there used to be four of them just in Fort Wayne, a number of others in Indiana's other major cities). I had to send the film to Chicago, and it cost me over $400 to get it developed, and some came back scratched. That was it, no more color film.

The digital camera I bought then was a Canon 5DmkII, a great camera, but it got too heavy for me to carry it and the lenses I had for it as my health got worse. I had suffered a stroke in 2013. So, this year I sold it all and bought the Olympus Pen-F Micro Four Thirds camera and several lenses. I love it, I can carry this gear pain-free all day and the image quality is great.

Now, all this time, I was shooting black and white film, too. I have not shot any BW film in a year though. I just don't feel well enough to stand on my feet in the cold basement where my darkroom is anymore, and my old film scanner is on its last legs. When it dies, I will not have the money to replace it.

I've also become more interested in mastering color photography, something I overlooked when I was younger because I was more into black and white back then. So, I'm all digital, at least for now.

Stainless steel classroom sinks and stage lights from the school's theater were among the various items for sale at the pre-demolition sale held at Elmhurst High School on January 27, 2018.

The building is being demolished now.
