Shooting photographs in a city provides some interesting challenges, including odd lighting conditions, crowds of people, strong light contrasts, and interesting angles. But, these same elements can help you create some of your best photos.
Look for elements unique to the city, such as Chicago’s Cows on Parade art installations that feature artist-inspired fiberglass cows throughout the city. Photographing many instances of the same theme could make a fun album to share with friends.
Look for geographic elements unique to the city. For example, if a city, like Denver, is located near mountains, shoot images that include them. Or if the city, like San Diego, is near a beach, use it as a backdrop for your photographic story.
