I shot this series yesterday and I debated whether to take the Fuji XT-3 and 16-80/4 WR OIS or the XPro-2 and the 16/27/35/50 primes. I ended up taking the first setup because after contemplation, I decided that given the light conditions and subject matter, I'd probably be shooting at f/4 or f/5.6 anyway to get the desired depth of field I wanted. That, and the fact that this would be a great time to take advantage of the OIS in the 16-80 lens and well...decision made.

Some images are in color, and other images in monochrome, processed to my liking with various film simulations using DxO FilmPack 5.

I've been to the Mansfield Reformatory a few times and shared images in the past. Just so much to see here and experience that I love going for the re-visit!
Any cinephiles will recognize the Stephen King short story turned acclaimed movie, The Shawshank Redemption was filmed here.

Enjoy!

Zechariah (shown in the photo above) seems grimly appropriate to this desolate place. That bible is even open to an apt set of verses:

Zechariah 7:8-14
8 And the word of the Lord came unto Zechariah, saying,
9 Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, Execute true judgment, and shew mercy and compassions every man to his brother:
10 And oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart.
11 But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear.
12 Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the Lord of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the Lord of hosts.
13 Therefore it is come to pass, that as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith the Lord of hosts:
14 But I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations whom they knew not. Thus the land was desolate after them, that no man passed through nor returned: for they laid the pleasant land desolate.

Wonderful set of images. Thanks for posting.

As wonderful a collection as this is, shot numbers, captions and selectivity would help. Too much to register for my aging mind. Love the topic, love the style, but . . . firehose viewing is not for me.

I very much enjoyed this set of photographs...creative compositions of a very interesting site. I enjoyed them so much that I am willing to drive to Mansfield from Chicago for a photo shoot.

After looking at the website, it appears that I will need to go through a private tour to shoot the location with a tripod. It doesn’t appear that very many of these photography tours are available. I found one for a June date that I can’t make.

Do you have any suggestions for identifying a tour for photographers?

Thank you...Glenn

they are very nice group of people that run the museum. I would recommend calling them and seeing about drinking something up, maybe even a photographer’s only time or day and perhaps a group can get together and go.

I’ve sheets just relied on OIS or IBIS, so never fully inquired about special tour parameters myself.
