If you don't have a studio, or even if you do, you will likely spend a lot of time searching out great locations to shoot outdoor portraiture. The perfect location for a specific context is not always easy to find, but the video below from Mango Street should you give you plenty of great ideas.

You can do some cool things with different types of reflections as well. The next idea should be approached with utmost safety in mind, but being just outside a construction site can be neat. You have a lot of bright colors, signage, fencing, etc. Chain-link fence, in fact, is the third idea in the video below. To see the rest of the portrait location ideas, watch the video below, it's not even two minutes long so it's well worth checking out.
