While prepping my portfolio for my move back to the Big Apple, I have come to appreciate my most used locations. As a photographer there is something very comforting in knowing that you can pose someone in a certain spot and the picture will turn out good.
However, (like most art) my favorite and most creative shots have come from a whim. I encourage people not to discredit certain locations because they are "basic"—just don't take basic shots. Easier said than done, obviously.
Below is a gallery of images with the same location that resulted in vastly different shots. Thank you to all of my friends, models, and clients who pushed me to get creative.
