I'm thinking of doing some really amateur photoshoots with my friends just to get some practice on taking portraits and stuff. I know i'm gonna get bashed for this, but dont have a lot of space in my house, and i don't really have any lighting equipment (i have a few construction work lights, and lamps), so i was thinking of mostly doing them outside. i was hoping for nice fluffy snow... but everything's either icey, dead grass, or sidewalk and pavement... so that idea's out. i live in... i guess the suburbs... and there really isnt any place interesting to shoot at (mostly because of the ice and lack of snow). we have a park with the ground covered in lumpy ice which... is pretty dangerous for people AND equipment. anyway, i was thinking of going out to the city, like downtown and doing a more urban shoot on the streets, or finding a nice place downtown (maybe grafitti wall... or harbourfront) and shooting. i know my request really broad but i'm just really looking for ideas anyone has... maybe like ideas they did in past shoots. If it helps I live in markham, ON... and i can probably go downtown toronto to shoot and stuff... anyone know good spots in that area?
