Hey Madison folks,

Anyone familiar with any run down place/ old buildings / old bridges/ deserted areas, in or around Madison WI. I am looking to shoot some Gothic or dark themed concepts.

Any input will be appreciated

Thanks

Looking for tips is a good thing but......looking at things with my own eyes has always been paramount. What places other folks might think is good, is shit for me in terms of lighting, secure, safe, etc etc.

That said, I just gas up the truck and explore on my own for best results.

This.

Many explorers do not just give these locations to people who ask not to hide them, but to protect them from even more unnatural abuse which is unfortunately all too common.

Example, a building I love shooting in would get littered with penis graffiti.  Not fun.
