Location Scouting For A Perfect Photoshoot

Perhaps for a sample of virtuals, how many of us have been in a position where we went to film photoshoot to discover something unexpected like...
a marathon, serious demolition that prevented you from utilising the venue?
One of my favorite parks is a complete renovation of a few years and every month I see demolition of every equipment around. The dirt road which looks all unique are all gone and tar paths took place. When it comes to outdoor photography, there should be reliance on outdoor locations of 75% for all photoshoots including wedding and pre-wedding photographs. Brides and grooms look up to the photographer for natural outdoor locations for their bridal photographs. Even real family photos go well with natural environment especially during the fall when all leaves change colors. For every photo shoot, there is always a need for a natural, clean, beautiful and exquisite outdoor locations.

Here are some tips on how to monitor and find the perfect place for your next photo shoot.

Know your customers

Every photo shoot is unique as every client differs. It is important for the photographers to know their clients as well as their tastes so as to suit their personality. This is a good feature as it provides the clients to be more relaxed and reliable in the photoshoot. By doing this, you will enhance a great job and also be recommended to other family and friends, thats actually a victory at both sides.
Weddings for my clients, there should be a legal question which is to describe their style and their wedding. It helps to plan the situation and the poses that appear in your style and personality. For photos of family, there should be a conversation with family members to get to understand exactly what type of photos they want. Do they want to have fun outside the park? Or do they want to hang out of the house with one another?
Family care is based on their needs.

  Scout at different times of the day           

When searching I see that my photographic sessions are well done, I try to visit the site several times a day. When searching for locations for photo shoot, try and visit the particular location time to time to get the idea of the lighting from different angles.
Does it have direct sunlight or light? Is it a busy area that might allow people walking into my shoot? The traffic patterns to the location? All these points are very cogent to plan the photoshoot.
Tip: If you find it difficult locating the venue for your photoshoot, use Google Maps and sunset times to determine the sun's position and the time of day when you are photographing. This will help you to be ready when you get to the venue of your location.

Attention to details


One of the biggest problems facing most photographers is related to light. All lights are not equal as different lightings make the difference. Early morning light is often sweet but misleading. In the afternoon, the light is often harsh, especially if you leave the subject in the light of the sun. The sunlight becomes warm and golden. The face of the light aftermath is  blue. You can shoot at each of these lengths in hot mode because you know how to display, get and light your item with each of the most important items.

To go on a trip


Road trips are always great in photographing! This is the best way to explore the new areas and find the special locations that suit you. This is actually a fun experience for everyone. Unfortunately, my kids will serve as a model to help me test the light on the background before the shooting photos of my clients.

There are several photographer groups both online and offline as constant ideas, tips and tricks are being shared to benefit everyone in the group. Make enquiry when choosing a location you are not that familiar with. Be kind and genuine in your request and search for unique areas for your shoot.
