October Photo Theme – Dilapidated Buildings

Gas along Route 66 | Photo by George Ziegler

Dilapidated Buildings can be found in almost every city and along roads bypassed by interstates. When photographing them you should endeavor to emphasize the mood. Use creative angles and perspectives to play up the natural character of the buildings. Get your camera low to the ground and shoot upwards to emphasize the vastness of a room, or shoot an angle to heighten the sense of disorientation.

Be careful when photographing old buildings. Many of them are unstable, have exposed nails and glass that could cut you, and may even be ready to collapse.

Upload up to five of your images to the club’s Monthly Photo Theme flickr® group.
