A photoshoot spot is important nowadays. Especially in a generation where fashion, especially street fashion, is taking over. Almost every person now dresses in very unique ways and most people prefer street fashion. This is because street fashion is very flexible and comfortable while you look like a million dollars. Okay, that was an exaggeration but with street fashion, one can look so fashionable while still being comfortable and incorporate so many different clothing. For instance, now people like to combine casual wear and formal wear and with that, you have street fashion!
Moreover, for a person who enjoys and genuinely puts effort into their outfits, a photoshoot location is very important. A lot of people lookup Area Outlook to help them search for locations. On the other hand, some people just drive or walk around to find the perfect spot.
The colour of the background, the time of day (for lighting, of course) and even the style of the photoshoot are important. How you take the photo or how you pose plays a role in the end result of your photos and how you want to show off your outfit. But in this article, we’re going to focus on the “where”. I’m going to list down a few spots that can help you enhance the outcome of your photos.
This is one of the simplest yet best choices for a street fashion photoshoot. A plain, coloured wall. No patterns, murals or anything else needed. Just an empty and coloured wall. Coloured walls, especially when it contrasts with your outfit can make your look pop out. Sort of enhancing your whole outfit while keeping it simple. So for this spot, it would not take a lot of effort to show off your outfit.
If you already have a garage, this would be the easiest spot to have your photoshoot. It would not be bothering anyone else and at the same time, you can take as long as you want and as many photos as you need. Garage doors, especially ones that are plain, will give you sort of a rustic background that can easily bring out your outfit. This spot will especially look nice if your outfit is matching the garage door a little bit. For instance, if your garage door is grey, it’d go with a monotone grey outfit or a black and white outfit. It goes well with any coloured outfit, honestly.
You would maybe have to go into the city to find this spot. A wall covered in graffiti. This spot looks best when you have an outfit that has no patterns on it. Say, a plain cocktail dress or a pairing of a plain shirt, plain jacket and jeans or leggings. People think that plain outfits look dull but a lot of people can pull off a plain outfit. However, to make your photos look fun and colourful, a wall with graffiti can help jazz up your outfit.
One of the most beautiful spots to take photos is a rooftop. With the sky behind you or the height of the roof being in between a lot of buildings, this spot will make your photo look majestic either way because both situations would be a great background. No matter what your wearing, in any pattern or any style, rooftops are one of the best options for a photoshoot spot. Plus, it’d be quiet and no one would bother you on your photoshoot.
Now, this might be a bothersome thing to pedestrians but sidewalks are a great place to take photos for your “outfit of the day” post. A lot of people, even models, take pictures on the sidewalk. At certain angles, taking pictures on a sidewalk will give your photo a very beautiful touch to it. Normally, people would take pictures at eye-level, chest-level or while they squat on the ground and angle the camera upwards just a little bit. This will give you the “long legs” effect.
So this one is a little dangerous. You have to be sure that you are not causing any traffic and if you find an empty street, that’d be better. I mean, it’s already called street fashion, right? So, what better way to accentuate your outfit than the streets themselves. The tip with taking photos on the streets is to not angle them too low or have too much street in the background like “look at this street” instead of “look at my outfit”. So, as mentioned in the previous spot, the camera at a lower level, angled a bit higher. Also, it’s a jackpot if you find an empty street.
Parking lots give your look a very mysterious vibe, It’s dark but with the right spot, near natural light or underneath the parking lot lights, your picture can look amazing. This applies to any style of street fashion you’re going for.
For this one, try not to be in anyone’s way while their grocery shopping. Maybe go when it’s not peak hour for people to go grocery shopping. This will give your photos a very colourful vibe. Plus, nowadays people like to match their Instagram feed’s colour grade or just take photos for the aesthetics of being in a supermarket.
There are just a lot of places where you can keep your aesthetics while not having to put much effort into it. But remember that you should never be a nuisance to strangers around you just to take your photo. Keep your feed as cool as ice while still being nice.
