Shoot early

SoHo is a popular spot for shopping and tourists, so if you want to avoid crowds and get the best light, plan to shoot early in the morning. The light is softer, there are fewer people around, and you’ll have more time and space to work with. Most stores open at 11am, so aim to shoot before then.

Be aware of construction

SoHo is a neighborhood that’s constantly changing, which means there’s always construction going on. Even if you see photos on social media of spots construction-free , there’s always a chance when you show up there will be scaffolding or barricades. Scout out locations beforehand if possible, and have backup locations in mind.

Bring a pop up changing tent or know where to change

If you’re planning on doing outfit changes during your shoot, make sure you have a way to change quickly and discreetly. A pop-up changing tent is a great option, or you can scout out nearby coffee shops. There are several Starbucks locations, and I also recommend Think Coffee, Dr. Smood, and Ground Support Cafe.

Grab props

To add some extra interest and personality to your photos, bring props or grab some along the way. This could be anything from a cup of coffee, a bouquet of flowers, or a statement bag.
