Photos are an easy way to capture a memory, and you don't have to go to a photo studio or pay someone big bucks to get a memorable photo. The location of a photo shoot can go a long way toward turning a good photo idea into a great photo. There are many cool places for a photo shoot in your own town where you can snap a great photo.
Waterfalls can be beautiful in themselves, but placing them in the background of a photo can make the photo that much better. Waterfalls give a peaceful, serene feel that creates a memorable scene for a smiling couple or happy children. Make sure the sun doesn't reflect off the waterfall, and don't let people get too close.
Mountains or Hills
The view from the top of a mountain or large hill can be breathtaking. You can typically get a birds-eye view of the land below, in addition to a clear view of the horizon. To get a good photo of people on a mountain or large hill, place them near the top of the hill or mountain with their back to the bottom of the hill or mountain. Place the photographer in front of the people and snap their photo, trying to take in as much of the surrounding scenery as possible.
Many people feel a strong connection to the houses they grew up in. A photo in front of a childhood home can mean a lot for people, especially if they haven't lived in that town in several years. Check with current owners for permission, so they don't wonder why people are standing in front of their house taking pictures.
Spot of First Date
Long-term couples, especially married couples, often have memories of their first date, whether positive or negative. Taking a photo at the spot where it all began can be equally memorable. Whether it was a downtown restaurant, the high school dance or a movie theater, revisiting the spot can bring back a lot of memories.
