Hey, I hope you’re all doing well and welcome to my blog. Today I am back with something a little different, I am back with a photography type post. I’ve seen this challenge around everywhere on YouTube but I haven’t really seen it on any blog accounts. Thanks to my boyfriend, I am going to be doing the ugly location photo-shoot challenge. My boyfriend has helped me so much recently on my blog and I appreciate it so much. Where I go to university, there are some good parts but there’s also some rough parts so me and my boyfriend put together a list of places we thought would make a great ugly location and worked together to get some decent shots bearing in mind he isn’t a photographer. Let’s get straight into the post, if you enjoy, make sure to follow my blog for more and like and comment on this post.
Location #1- Local park
Parks are pretty and all but this park where I go to university is quite run down and everything has rusted. While we were walking round, we came across these flowers which I thought were really pretty and I thought I would sit between them and then my boyfriend (Josh) would stand on the other side and crouch down. And these are the finished images. I absolutely love them and I want to post them everywhere, Josh did an amazing job with these ones.
When we finished taking photos here, we were looking round and we saw the tennis courts and I thought that this location would make a really good background for a photo and we had this idea where I stand behind the bars and Josh stands at the other side and I think these turned out alright, their not my favourite but I think their pretty cool.
The last place we went to while at this location is this bridge type thing that looked really run down but I thought it made a cute prob for the photo and made a good background. I really like this images which are already on my Instagram if you haven’t already seen. I took a few with my jacket over my shoulders and some without.
Location #2- Big Garden
A few weeks ago me and my boyfriend went to this garden that was a few minutes up the road and there was this abandoned building as we were walking round and I thought it could make a really edgy and cool. Josh crouched down onto the floor to get a whole body shot and I feel like this turned out really well.
The next location here was only a two minute walk away and it was a path that looked really run down and the stairs had rushed etc and I really love the first one because I’m on the floor and I feel it makes the picture look so much nicer. We also took some whole body shots and I really like how these turned out.
Location #3- Canal path-
When I was thinking of doing this challenge, the first thing I thought of was a graffiti wall and as I walk down to the local shops by my university, there’s a canal you walk down and there are loads of walls around that have graffiti all over. This was probably the hardest place to get photos as it looked really run down and I had no idea how to make these look good but in the end, I think they turned out rather good and I think they look really edgy. The second image was taken in front of a flower bush just behind the wall so they are in the same location.
When we were looking around this location, we came across some bins and I thought this would be perfect for this challenge, I don’t really like how the pictures turned out in the end but I do think they look pretty cool and I think I would be able to upload them to Instagram.
And that is the end to the ugly location photo shoot challenge, I really enjoyed doing this challenge and it just goes to show that if you have a great imagination, you don’t need to be in a pretty location to be able to get good photos, I hope you enjoyed, let me know down below which location was your favourite.
