Photographing abandoned buildings and locations is getting harder and harder, so any video offering tips on how to do it is worth a watch.
I have a real penchant for the abandoned and desolate. When I got my first camera, some of my initial self-imposed missions were to hunt down abandoned places and photograph them. In the U.K, it's a bit of a paradox. We have a lot of history and old buildings, but we're so small that abandoned places often get bought up, flattened, and turned in to copy-paste housing. There are a few exceptions, usually when the rightful owner of the property won't sell, the land or building is contested, or it's military location, which is usually heavily guarded. However, the U.S seems like a gold mine in certain places (albeit involving a lot of driving.)
In this video, Ed Verosky interviews Kat Swansey, a Texas-based photographer of the abandoned, and she offers a look in to her work, as well as some advice. I highly recommend taking a look at her work, with Kat's Instagram being a good place to start.
