Airports are great placed to take abstract photos. This is because it usually have wide open space, and a lot of lines shapes. Above is a shot taken of the ceiling of the Terminal 2 at Hong Kong’s airport. I have to find a spot where i was nearly the same height as the ceiling before i can get the ‘effect’ i want. Here are some tips:
- look up & look around
- try to move around (most of the time is to avoid the pillars! hahah)
- converging lines are always fun
- think black and white
- people. tired travelers are usually like subjects, but choose wisely and ask for permission
- wait. either so that you can get a clean shot or for your ‘main’ subject to appear
It doesn’t cost any $$ to take photos nowadays, so just snap away and experiment. And with time to kill at the airport before your flight, it’s a great time to explore new styles and techniques. That’s my take.
