How To Photograph Abandoned Locations

October 30, 2014 by Sheena Koontz

How To Photograph Abandoned LocationsOne of my favorite subjects to shoot is a long forgotten structure being slowly taken back by nature. These buildings speak of days gone by and whispered stories that have long faded from the walls. Photographing abandoned locations is not for the timid photographer.

There is still beauty left in these old buildings, it just requires a little work to show everyone else what you see. A building can be photographed a hundred times and each photograph can be different.

Every photographer sees something different even though they are all looking at the same structure. Don’t make the mistake of trying to copy what someone else has already done, look for your own angle.
