Where Do I Take my Outfit Pictures?

Finding the time to take outfit pics is probably the hardest part of blogging. Working a full time job leaves me little time to get out and take pics of great looks.  Lately, I have been asking all my friends to help out with the pictures, and so far they have been doing a great job. Most of my looks are shot on the weekend, and at different spots around Hamilton. I get asked a lot to share the locations that I use and to be honest I kind of hate giving them up. I also tend to shoot a few looks at the same location while using different spots at that location. Hamilton really doesn't have a great selection of cool locations but so far I have been happy with the five or six settings I gravitate too.
So what do I look for in a great setting? First, great light! This is hard to find some days as the sun really isn't my friend, but sheltered areas that are outdoors seem to always have fail proof light. Second, I love a neutral background, I find if there is too much happening behind me, the picture tends to be distracting. Third, I do look at pics from other bloggers to see where they are shooting in my area, and if I notice a spot is being over used I tend to avoid it. The last thing I want is for my pics to look like all the others.
Unfortunately, I am not out and about in the 'cool kid' places all that much anymore so my pictures are more outdoor-like. If you live in Hamilton and know of some great places for shooting pics let me know! I am always looking for new and great spots.
