There is this abandoned home and garage just about 1/2 mile from where I live. I have passed it many times w/o to much notice. But, the other day, the Sun was low, and the light was fantastic.. or too much, how ever you look at it.
The next day I took my E-M5 with a 14mm mounted, and used “Myset 3″… Setup for B&W JPG with a Yellow filter.
I used CS5 to edit them, not AfterShot Pro.. (Something about saving an Original JPG as a Converted JPG went wonky)
Plus CS5 has 3 lens correction controls that is enough for the slight barrel distortion correction of the 14mm.
(The few I could convert in ASP, did have the correction applied)

One of the cautions you MUST adhere to is look at the floor for weakness. many many old homes have Wood floors with a 2/foot or less crawl space that supports the floor. Also made with Wood. So, any riot will cause the floor too cave in. And always look high also, the roof can also be collapsing!
Personally, with a Wood Floor Abandoned Home, I take photos from open doors and windows without entering the building. If, it has a Concrete Floor, it will be a lot safer to enter than building with a wood floor.

Always look for different angles, and interesting compositions. Try to show something a little different than a normal viewpoint. A wide angle lens allows this a bit easier than a using a normal lens, which is good for details of whatever.
