Urban outdoor portrait photography can depict the true dark underbelly of most cities. This face of the city generally remains unseen, as it is an unpleasant reminder to most of us as to how the homeless live. It can also be downright ugly and dangerous. However, like it or not, it does exist and does need to be seen. So, if you would like to take outdoor portrait photographs in some of the darker parts of your city, here are 5 tips that could help you.
Most homeless people do not like being photographed. The few that will allow you to take the photographs will not be too patient about it. Avoid using a tripod. Use a camera that is easy to use, is fairly high speed, and which works well in natural light. Also keep your bag as light as possible and keep the camera handy. That way you will not miss any sudden and unexpected photo ops.
