4. Pick a decade and Recreate

When you think about different ages, think of going back in time. Create a photoshoot centered around these different ideas. One of my favorites for example is the 80’ and 90’ area of aviany faux feathers mixed in with some silver chromatic vibes.

Creating a board of photos that depict a certain decade or year can result in photos that look contemporary yet seem timeless. Try it out and make your own board!

5. Coffee is still in!

When taking these photos, make sure to get something in the background that's interesting. Maybe there is an old sign on the wall, or a piece of art that you can pose in front of. Coffee shops are great places to take photos, especially if you like the low light style.

If you don’t have a favorite coffee shop then try and find local places to support your local businesses!

Good ideas may be when you are away on vacation, with friends, or in a new city.

Hotel rooms with nice beautiful views can be a go to photoshoot place. You can decorate the area and get some beautiful views while on vacation or away from home on holiday.

2. Outdoors/ Events

Outdoor events may occur in which you can take some of your photos. Think of events at night with others or larger events with larger groups.

In larger cities like New York City you have the opportunity to get out and take beautiful photos of fireworks. Additionally if you are in places like Los Angeles you can attend Universals Studio’ city walk celebrations.

Miami - There are beaches located in Downtown Miami such as Bayfront Park that have live music which you can watch fireworks from in 2023.

Think of the fireworks mentioned previously as well if there is an event that you can go to. Also remember to stay warm!

3. Dining and other venues

If you end up visiting a nice restaurant this may be a great time to get some photos inside the venue or outside. Depending on the venue you may have a beautiful view of the city or have a significant icon of the city.

This can get many things done as well such as eating, dressing up and taking great photos! I highly recommend getting a rooftop restaurant for airy photos. Just remember to bring a jacket!

4. Home or apartment
