Understanding the Location

Whenever you find a location to shoot, it is important to first reflect on how the location wants to be shot.

Some locations are ideal for wide angles, while others for close-ups. Environments can feel 2D or 3D, spaces can be horizontal or vertical. Locations can be more interesting to shoot during the day or at night. Their colors can feel either hot or cold and their mood can be light or heavy.

Also remember that shooting in private locations, monuments and some landmarks may require that you ask for permission to shoot.
