    Hi everyone.

    Urban Exploration Photography has always been something which has fascinated me, and me and a few friends have decided to try it out.

    I was wondering if anyone on this website has done it before, and has any tips about how to go about it, or anything essential we need to have or do? I'd also love to hear any feedback on anyone else's trips, or any suggestions of interesting places.

    Thanks.

    Hey, sorry you haven't had any responses. I find urban exploring pretty interesting myself, and have gone to a few locations in my area. If you want to find the best places around you, I'd recommend you have a look on one or more of these sites-

    As for taking the photos, I just explore the location with friends, taking photos of anything which interests me. I use a Nikon DSLR, and sometimes end up using flash in dark areas. I'll attach a few photos as examples. Hope this helps!
