Do you like abandoned photography, shooting old buildings and ruins? In this video, pro photographer Kylee Leonetti gives you tips on where to find the best locations. To get started, Kylee suggests going online and searching for keywords, Abandoned Photography, Urban Explorers, or Shooting Ruins. Next, you will want to drive around with a map or GPS to help you scout locations. Rural areas are full of abandoned farm buildings and equipment, while cities offer deserted schools and factories. When photographing ruins, you will learn coverage, shooting wide, medium, and tight, and Kylee will show you examples. No matter where you live, you can find ruins that yield myriad photo opportunities.
