Capturing The “Wild” City

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

capturingWith hundreds and millions of people who run from their work to homes, to pubs and to concerts every day, the city continuously feels their life and lives through them.

Music, arts and people talking are making the city talk and sing during the day and night. What will happen when all of the crowd and noise will disappear?

Capturing a good frame of the wild, free and quiet city will give a mysterious excitement to the photographer. The empty city without people can be considered as a cradle without a baby.

The dusk and the nightfall give perfect opportunity to the photographer to capture the lights, shades and the mysterious atmosphere of an empty city without people in the frame. Shades, especially, may play a good role to express the loneliness of the area.

To highlight the loneliness, simple objects can be chosen which can underline the absence of human beings. The examples of such objects will be a small boat on the shore during dusk, an empty chair near the window or a pitching bike near the wall.

These objects can be specifically chosen, to show the loneliness and the beauty of it emphasizing how the picture of a singular object might be so successful about showing different emotions together.

When considering all the facts above while capturing an empty city and its extreme solitude, the idea of a ghost town will appear.

This time no Red Kit will show in the frame, but capturing the wind sweeping some newspaper pages will be a good idea to consider for a unique composition.

  1. Hey, I was scanning another thing about this on another blog. Interesting. Your perspective onto it is diametrically contradicted to what I read earlier. I am still pondering over the opposite points of view, but I’m leaning to a large degree toward yours. And irrespective, that’s what is so wonderful about modern-day democracy and the marketplace of ideas online.
