Three Helpful Tips for Finding Great Portrait Locations Near You

Finding good portrait locations can be a bit of a challenge, particularly if you don't live in a sprawling metropolis with numerous options waiting to be explored. This helpful video will give you three tips to have a better chance of finding great portrait locations.

Coming to you from Moose Winans, this great video gives three tips for finding portrait locations. If there's one thing I've really learned when it comes to finding such places, it's that you need to retrain your eye and think a bit differently when scouting. We're mostly used to looking at locations as a whole and judging them based off that, but a tight portrait requires very little room around the subject, and even a wider shot probably requires less than you might think. This means that most places likely offer great small spots to shoot in, and with a little careful scouting, you can get a lot more out of them than you might imagine upon the initial judgment. When you're looking at a potential location, try to think less about the scene as a whole and more about the individual elements within it. Check out the video above for more helpful tips.
