'Silent Vienna' is going to be my new photography series project that I've thought about for a while now. It will consist of architectural landmarks and (usually always) populated places and squares in Vienna but - here it comes - empty. Without people. Or at least only with traces of people like ghostly figures. I'm calling the series 'silent' because in my opinion these pictures void of people produce a feeling of silence. I will also provide the information on where the pictures were taken and what the architectural subjects are called (so far as they have names) since they're supposed to be famous and well-known places.

I don't yet know for how long I'll do this series. I'll treat it as an open end project and I'll definitely take other pictures in between too. My first technique will be to use a tripod, neutral density filters, and long exposures. The second technique will be tripod only and to take multiple exposures of the same composition and creating smart objects in photoshop in order to get rid of people in the scenes.

Whether or not I'll be doing shots for the series in winter, I don't know yet. Usually I strongly prefer spring to autumn as I feel that bare trees are less nice and the natural lighting in winter isn't as pretty. It'll also depend on how harsh the winter will be since I'm a summer person and consider anything below 20 Celsius cold.

This is the first picture of 'Silent Vienna' that I took in spring 2014 and decided to use to open the project:

I hope that the ones of you that are interested in Vienna will learn a little about our architecture and history and about the sights that may be worth a visit if you ever decided to take a trip to Vienna. I also hope you'll enjoy the series photography-wise.
