Any city or town can be a source of fantastic backdrops if you just know where to look. In this short, fun and informative video, Tajreen and Chloe of Tajreen&Co will show you four portrait locations you can find in any neighborhood. Even the ugliest one!

1. Solid colored walls

Every neighborhood definitely has these, just pay some attention to them as you walk. They can serve as a great, simple backdrop for your portraits. Other than solid colors, keep an eye out for interesting colors, textures and patterns, too.

Or if you’re lucky, your local park will have a weird mirror that makes an awesome backdrop. Image credits: Milica Vujičić

2. Bushes and foliage

Since orange is the base color of most skin tones, it looks good against the green tones of the foliage. So, placing your subject against a green backdrop is often a good idea, as the color of the foliage can make your subject stand out.

3. High locations

Finding different angles is always a good idea, and the girls used an empty playground to get some low-angle shots. You can shoot from low or high angles, it’s up to you. But either way, you’ll have minimum distractions in the background.

4. Corners

Finally, look for corners. Their leading lines are an easy way to draw the viewers’ attention to your subject. Find outer or inner corners where walls meet or even lines on the ground.

We are often traveling in search for amazing sights and perfect portrait locations. At the same time, we often take our own place of living for granted. But when your time and budget are limited, remember that even your boring, old neighborhood can give you some great photo opportunities, too. Just open your eyes and your mind!
