To get to the Red Door in MADiSON, you'll have to find a tucked-away passage within the basement. Head down the main stairs and enter the basement room that has the generator. Head into the next room past the breaker panel to see a narrow room that has a supply shelf at the end. Head all the way to the end of this room so you are in front of the shelf. Look to your right and you'll see a very narrow hallway space.

Once you located the vertical crawl space type corridor in the basement, approach it. You'll notice you've approached it the right way if your inventory and camera can no longer be pulled out. Keep moving forward until you get all the way to the other side of the corridor. Now, you'll be at the top of the steps that lead down to the Red Door on your right-hand side.

To unlock the Red Door, go down the steps a bit and get closer to the door. Don't get too close, as you need to have a full view of the door still. Take out your camera and line up your shot.

Once you have taken the photo of the Red Door and developed it, the door will unlock. You can now step through and start the next part of the MADiSON story.
