Mystery caravan

By cathsnap
I took a few photos of this old caravan but couldn't decide which one was best. Chose the one on an angle because I liked it looking a bit precarious. I wonder who lived here and where they are now. Could use a bit of help with the composition. Lighting wasn't brilliant. Thinking about taking the same shot at sunset or sunrise, perhaps a spooky picture??

Its a competent shot in poor light. You can work with this in post processing to make it appear spooky, - mainly darkening, and playing with colour and tones.


Ive uploaded two to show what I mean, - the mod2 has a night feel and some mist.

I would agree to try and photograph this at a different time of day to make more use of the light. Overall this is quite flat. Can you get closer to photograph from a different angle? If you can I would encourage you to explore different angles and closer with a wide angle lens may emphasise the decay of this caravan.

I have tried a tighter and high contrast mono mod to emphasise the subject abandoned amongst the overgrown undergrowth.

This has promise as a subject and I think a little more exploration will help you find the angle, lighting and composition to convey the mystery and even create the spooky feel you want.

It is a competent image, but rather flat due to the lighting. You could work on this one in many ways, but some suitable lighting, a mist, maybe, and contrast would lift a record into a high impact image.

Thanks so much. The mods are fantastic, really inspiring. I will be able to go back sometime and get some different angles with better light.
