Shooting photographs in a big city provides some interesting – and challenging – opportunities. You’ll be challenged by odd lighting conditions, strong lighting contrasts, and interesting angles but those same items can help you create cool photos. Use these city photography tips to improve your results when shooting in urban areas.
Tour The Area … But Keep The Camera In The Bag
Start by taking a city bus tour, one that hits all of the best “sights,” especially if you’re unfamiliar with the city. Yeah, I know: City bus tours result in all of the same “touristy” types of photos. Rather than shooting photos while on the tour, use the bus tour to figure out which landmarks and city sights you really want to photograph. By taking the bus tour, you’ll have less of a chance of wasting your time later on places that you don’t want to shoot.
