    Sharing threats is rarely welcomed.
    Sharing thread or sharing treat for you - Please have a look at other sections of the forum. Places to shoot are discussed frequently, many threads with pictures even state the location. Beside this, there is no 'portrait place' as such - the location has to fit your theme and other criteria. And sometimes the backside of the HDB block is already the right place.

    Please do try to at least look at the previous threads. People have already shared and cared, but by not searching, you are not caring...

    Pretty hot model? Guy or girl?

    Anyway for TS... it is up to the imagination of yourself to create a very good area for portraite... it can be in studio, bathroom, hotel room, Kei's room, your own room, any HDB void decks, fort canning, east coast park, sentosa, botanical garden... even sungei budoh, pulau ubin, etc, etc.

    I would advise that you look at some of what others had done when taking portraits and some location featured in those photos to get some ideas and themes... then choose.

    All the best.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    Actually if shooting is done using wide aperture like f1.2, then it doesn't matter the location ... Because the background is blurrrrrrr...

    I like Chinese Garden, Fort Canning etc. Actually you really just have to look around and you'll find suitable places. Cheers.
