Outdoor locations for portraits in Sheffield

I am looking for locations to do some 'urban' feel portraits in and around Sheffield. I have some bodies lined up (breathing ones ) that are willing to help.

It's the first time I've done this so any advice would be appreciated but just want to try and broaden my experience a little...or maybe a lot!

Re: Outdoor locations for portraits in Sheffield

I can only suggest the obvious really, down in the City Centre. Maybe around the canal basin, Park Hill flats.......what's left of them.

What area of Sheff you in?

Re: Outdoor locations for portraits in Sheffield

I'm in Handsworth. I have thought about Victoria Quays as it would make a decent backdrop. I was looking for somewhere that is near derelict too. I was in Leeds a few weeks ago and near to the Armouries is a path by the canal next to what look like old mills etc. Thats sort of what I had in mind.

Re: Outdoor locations for portraits in Sheffield

A walk along the canal my prove fruitful although they have cleaned it up.

Attercliffe might be worth a look around some of the side streets.

Re: Outdoor locations for portraits in Sheffield

Attercliffe has to be the place for urban, you get a mix of old and new industry, and a drive around some of the back street you may find what your looking for.

Re: Outdoor locations for portraits in Sheffield

Unless it's an overcast day, try to shoot in the shade / dappled shade. Use a simple reflector (large white card will do) to bounce some light back in

Skateboard park...like that one. cheers aidey! had a few more thoughts and a brief look around attercliffe. There used to be a club just off attercliffe road, opposite worksop road - can't remember the name of it had been stood empty for years but don't know if it's still there - everywhere seems to be redeveloped in the blink of an eye these days!

Re: Outdoor locations for portraits in Sheffield

I'm at Norton. If I rememer there used to be a walk from the sheaf to the back of comet. It was realy grimy. not sure of its still there. There is a painting in the doorway just past stapels. Opposit decathlon that looks amazing. its behind the Bus stop. I was thinking of doing something there. If you walk from the station past Howard hotel up to the librery then on to Cole brothers there is a lot of urben stuff to keep you happy.

If you looke round there is some amazing stuff.
