Thread: location idea

    Default location idea

    Hi, I have a photoshoot (yukata themed) coming up but the problem is chinese gardens, japanese gardens are overly used which makes it too generic/common. I would like something more unique more out of the blue. Please advise. Thank you

    Lim Chu Kang Chinese cemetery if you are looking for out of the blue and into this kind of mood, not sure if your model will agree to go there but it will definitely be different

    Explore both gardens and see if you can think of something that stands out from the rest.
    E.g. using of props like those traditional jap umbrellas, etc.

    Otherwise you might want to try places like botanical gardens like areas with bamboos, or even some nicely decorated Jap restaurants (buy a couple of sushi to eat too).

    Haha, best not to go if like that. How about a Jap martial arts dojo? Quite a few members here can give you advice on that, one of them would be SurrealDreamWalker.

    you might want to research what the yukata represents and why the Japanese wear it before deciding on WHERE to shoot.

    if you have a setting that doesn't gel with the theme, then it just messes it all up

    ahh gomen~ne kudasai

    try something new? i think a beach scene like those in manga would look nice. especially if it's a couple shot in the evening.

    adding in. East Coast park has some of those rustic-looking benches that'd go well with the beach-side manga theme.

    no need add kudasai behind "gomen ne" hahaha.. "gomen ne kudasai" its like "sorry please" (word for word translation) "gomen" for more casual tone or "gomenasai" or for more formal. hmmm.. not bad suggestion XD very anime-ish..
