Location for the Photo Shoot
Do you find it difficult to find a place to do a photo shoot for your blog? I think it is one of those issues for the bloggers like us. It is hard to find the right location to snap some #ootd because people are everywhere. Especially, if you are thinking about doing it at the weekend, then think again. However, if you love the bustling life of the big city, I guess this shouldn't be a problem at all.
If you have a car, that will be really easy to travel to some of the coolest and interesting places in town. However, I can't drive, also my boyfriend has been in a process of 'modifying' his Honda to be a fast one. So, he has been in a limbo which he still has to decide what he is going to do with every single part of the new toy. For those who are looking for the car's equipment, try National, it is like an All-in-1 website providing most of everything you are looking for. Everything about the car is like the world to him. Hence, city center is only my choice (for now). Personally, I love taking photos at the center of Manchester because I love the vibe surrounded by a lot of buildings and modern architectures. Though, there are a lot of people at the city center, there always be the right spot for us to pose. For Manchester blogger based, Northern Quarter is one of the popular places in town because the graffiti there is so cool. The hipster location surrounded by several modern cafes is the place, which makes the photos look cheerful. However, I don't really take a photo there since it is everyone's choice. I don't know, I don't really go where everybody goes. Some may do the photo shoot at their own gardens, or around the houses, but since I don't have my own garden, I can't do that. Luckily, I love the buildings so much that I can literally shoot anywhere. It can be a dark shortcut at the back of the restaurant areas, or in the middle of the streets, I am up for it. I think once, I did a photo shoot at the parking lot lol
I am really shy in person, but if I am not doing it here, then I have nowhere to go. The city center can elevate your Instagram to another level. I have followed a lot of New York bloggers, who take their outfit photos at the city, that's why I feel like they are my motivation to do something similar. Even though, Manchester is just a small city, compared to London, I think it is better to use every single bit of what we have here in order to create the cool photos that no one has ever done.
