Talented photographers see the beauty in every scene they happen upon. Urban decay photography is proof that even abandoned places can be the source of great shots. However, you have to be well-prepared before visiting one of these old places for your own safety. For example, you will need to wear good boots to protect your feet from the broken glass and other unexpected materials on the ground. For your shots, you will need to take a flash light with you, because most of these places do not have enough light and have no electricity. The flash light will help you while you’re walking around these abandoned places checking the best themes and angles for taking pictures.
Since you are going to take your shots in low light conditions, you will need to use long exposure to get enough light on the camera lens. Experimenting with different exposure values can also help you get better results. A slow shutter speed and a high ISO can help you get better results, and in order to avoid camera shake, you will also need to use a tripod to make sure that you get sharp shots.
Also, choosing the right angle can help you get amazing results. So, you need to experiment with different angles to find the best composition for a certain theme. In the showcase below, you will find some breathtaking examples of urban decay photography.
