Shooting in ruins can be hazardous. So in this video, pro photographer Kylee Leonetti shows you important safety tips for photographers. For abandoned buildings and farms, you need to obey the posted signs including No Trespassing. If no signs are posted, make sure you are shooting on public or abandoned property, and do not shoot in areas posted for hunting. You will want to carry a flashlight, a first aid kit, and a water bottle. Finally, Kylee suggests bringing a friend or a second shooter because there may be no cell phone service. Follow these safety tips for photographers, and you can focus only on your shooting experience.
