Thread: Good accessible locations for portraiture?

    Default Good accessible locations for portraiture?

    Hey guys...

    I'm really a newbie when it comes to portraiture... never really shot any except for family photos...

    I have a TFCD planned with a colleague and was wondering what are good locations for portraiture? What are your favourite spots? Preferably easily accessible as I don't drive.

    Thanks in advance!

    My office.

    And it is weather-proof.

    I photograph people. Not locations. Locations lend variety. But not essential to my imagery.

    depends on what you are looking for. i know for outdoor wedding photos, ppl usually go to the botanical garden.

    if you have a theme in mind, then probably it will be easier for other CSers to give you some recommendations.

    just my 2 cents...

    Yea, that's one option (my sister's wedding photos were shot in Punggol)

    I was thinking of landmarks... maybe the Fullerton? And the Esplanade? Do you think these are good places to go to or have they been photographed to death?

    if u wanna be safe, somewhere with alot of GREEN, as green is quite a neutral shade and shouldn't throw you or your meter off so easily.

    so i guess that would be any park, the denser the better.

    But GREEN will bounce sunlight strongly and will throw a stong green cast on the face and clothes.
