    Hello everyone, complete newbie here hoping to learn and start exploring, I also enjoy photography and am hoping to get some good pics whilst exploring.

    When I say im a newb at this I really mean, I've never done anything like urban exploration before so im a bit apprehensive, If any one could give me a few pointers for my first explore that would be wonderful, I dont mean in terms of location Im sure i can find a good site myself, but more like a list of stuff I should take with me just in case, or any common mistakes thats newbs make that I can try and avoid.

    Of course if there is anybody in the norwich area who would be willing to help me out and let me join them on some explores that would be great

    Hi and welcome, start off with something simple like a tunnel,
    ROC post, even just a walk in to build up your confidence : )

    As for stuff you might need it depends on where you are going
    Really such as what kind of site.
    Having a torch on you is always a good idea with a spare one as
    A back up, also gloves if you are planning on climbing.
    The main thing really is a decent tri-pod, and you might want
    To take a spare set of clothes, you never know what might
    Happen ;)

    Looking foward to seeing some stuff :thumb

    Welcome in . There's quite a few from the flatlands on here, the usual thing is get a report or 2 up so people people get a feeling for you so to speak.. whether to marry snog or avoid lol

    Use the search box for locations in your areas ? Ànd reference these with any reports you can view to assess if these will fit your interests and abilities ;)

    Oh & don't HDR the F#ck out of everything & all win be fine lol

    Right-o, i'll have a look at some reports and hopefully be able to get some of my own up soon.

    Also I take it your not a big fan of HDR, or are you just irritated by people who overuse it to try and make their bad photography look better?

    Yep we kind of don't like it. Avoid rosary road tunnels as they are full of some sort of gas. What sort of thing interests you then

    Slightly unsure as to what you mean by what interests me, If you mean in the way of buildings and possible places to explore then anything with some history attached to it would pique my curiosity, if you mean in photography then anything that looks pleasing to my eye, and Im aware of what a broad statement that is :p

    Think I'm a bit late to this chat but I would say an asbestos mask is pretty important in old buildings unless you want to f**k your lungs up in the future ;)
