365 Days Photo challenge | Day 18

Hey Photographers! Today is the day 18/365 Days Photo Challenge! 


?Photo Tip #18

Find the hallmark of the place where you are!


In today's article I would like to share with you one simple technique that you can use in order to find cool spot for shooting! Today's advice will be useful for photographers who no longer know what to shoot in their city or those who are in an unfamiliar place and do not know where to start. The idea is simple. You need to find a distinctive feature of the city, but that does not mean that it should be the most famous place, in fact it should be a place that residents and tourists in particular usually miss. I live in Milan, Italy and for my shooting I've chosen building Torre Velasca. This piece of architecture is quite famous and unusual because of its shape that reminds hammer  among people who is interested in art but still loads of people who come to milan will leave the city and never lay an eye on this amazing construction.


So if you've been planning to visit Milan remember to go and see Torre Velasca probably the best view on this building is from Duomo church rooftop!


Now let's see some of my shots of that construction before I'll tell you how to find these kind of special spots in a place where you are!
