We are back with the team from Mango Street today, this time to get a few tips on portrait locations. So often we see the same sort of thing over and over, the same locations, used in the same old way. But how do you up your game, really make your work stand out from the crowd? How do you “reinvent” the way a popular location has been shot? Or what do you look out for when scouting for something new? Let’s take a look…

Tips in Short:

1. Colour and Texture.
2. Lighting.
3. Interactive Background.

If you haven’t discovered these guys yet, the team at Mongo Street recently started up their YouTube channel and we’ve got a feeling there’s some great content on the way. So head on over, check it out and hit subscribe while you’re there. You can also follow them on Instagram, at @rachelgulotta and @danielinskeep.
