I don't see anything wrong with photographing cemeteries as long as you do it respectfully. If I run across one that seems interesting to me I have always taken the time to shoot it. I find them interesting in different parts of the world and how they bury their dead. I haven't received any bad karma because of this and I view them as just another subject matter without getting all twisted up inside about what I am shooting.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

Yes, peaceful but not many of the deceased passed away peacefully.....:p

How many have you asked to confirm this? :lol:

Personally, as long as you are respectful of the grounds, graves, etc. I see no reason not to take them.

I have many shots of not only ancestor's graves I never personally knew but others who were gone long before I existed. I often wonder when taking these photos how many may have not been visited in years and for a brief moment they exist again if only in my reading their name.

As some have stated many monuments are artwork in and of itself. If the eternal owner didn't want someone to see it and think of them (whether you knew them or not) they wouldn't have markers as they serve no use otherwise.

What is your thoughts? I have been on the fence with this one since there is the Greenwood cemetery in Brooklyn. I am concerning about the artistic nature of it. Well, I am very receptive to the spirit world. :) Emotionally and psychologically, I am not sure I should be just randomly shooting there.

Visited Greenwood Cemetery last weekend...http://keddyphoto.com/​p56658210 (external link)

I dont mind taking photos in cemetaries as long as its done respectfully. Cemetaries can be very serene and peacful and sometimes can be a good way of rememberance.

There is a greenwood cemetary in Dallas. here is a link to a set i took in that one.

Gravesend Cemetery on ave.I is the oldest in NYC. Buried there are a few Indians along with white settlers.
Take F to ave.I, walk towards the mechanic shop.

I could be wrong, but the biggest cemetery in Europe is in Vienna Austria; a real necropolis.

We always take cemetery pics. I took pics before my mom's funeral and after my dad's burial. We were visiting my father-in-law's grave at DFW National Cemetery. All of a sudden my daughter ran up to a gravestone and hugged it. Didn't know who it was but just happened to be ready with the camera.

I have no qualms in taking my high school photography students to the city's oldest cemetery. It's a great place for them to start thinking in black and white.
