  • Bridge connecting two parks

    Chicago_brige_photospot.jpg Part of the coast of Chicago is simply strewn with huge and beautiful parks, one of them, and perhaps the most famous, is Millennium Park, Maggie Daley Park nestles close to it, but we want to show you not these parks, but the incredible footbridge that connects them! British Petroleum Pedestrian Bridge (BP Pedestrian Bridge) is a magnificent architectural structure, shaped like a crawling snake, the path is paved with wood, and from the sides it is closed with a metal fence half a meter high. This is a great place for a photo shoot, where you can take a lot of incredible photos, because this bridge itself is very aesthetic, and the view from it is magnificent, on the one hand on the Chicago skyscrapers, on the other hand on the huge Lake Michigan. You should definitely visit this location, at any time of the year!

  • The biggest Starbucks in the world

    Starbucks_chicago_photospot.jpg It is in Chicago that the largest Starbucks in the world is located! This is a magnificent multi-storey complex on different floors of which guests are waiting for different types of service, so on the first two floors you can enjoy classic coffee and pastries from Starbucks, then on the third floor, an experimental coffee bar with experimental drinks, on the next floor a bar with author's cocktails and all this splendor ends with a rooftop terrace with a beautiful view of the city. This is a very cool place for both drinking coffee and taking a lot of photos, because the interior in this Starbucks is very beautiful and aesthetic, with many copper-steel structures and elements that create a modern steampunk atmosphere.

  • Adler Planetarium - open space building

    Planetarium_photospot_chicago.jpg The first US planetarium stands out not only for its expositions and space a few meters above your head, but also for its appearance. The old, rough-hewn stone building adorned with modern posters is unappealing compared to other fancy planetariums. But against the background of rough walls, contrasting photographs with a bizarre, cinematic atmosphere are obtained. Take the blue sky, bright clothes and the angle from afar as helpers. For example, take a photo of a staircase so that the straight guides create a deep perspective.

  • Lyric Opera of Chicago - a place where art lives

    Opera_Chicago_photo_spot.jpg Touch the art at the Lyric Opera of Chicago and leave a photo as a keepsake. The Chicago Opera House is one of the largest in the United States. The brutal Art Deco building is beautifully combined with soulful photographs dedicated to creativity. The aesthetics of the photographs of the opera lies in the combination of massive heavy lines and fragile, feminine poses. To strike a balance between roughness and tenderness, find the right shooting angle so that the guide lines line up in parallel rows. Try on bold artistic images and enjoy the aesthetics of the Lyric Opera.

  • The Rookery Building - light steampunk

    photoshoot_on_stairs.jpg A delicate interweaving of styles survives in one of Chicago's oldest commercial skyscrapers, the Rookery Building. Ornate spiral staircases with patterned railings and long panoramic windows are a great place for vintage photos. A mysterious spiral of steps can become the center of the composition if you place it on the photo according to the principle of symmetry. The effect of the composition with the right angle will only increase. Perfectly honed angles, turns, and even carvings on the walls help to recreate the old-time atmosphere with a slight touch of steampunk on the frames.

  • Education Pavilion - symmetry in every detail

    Chicago_spotoshoot_symmetry.jpg The symmetrical pavilion looks like a tortoise shell, carefully sheltering people from the hot sun. Light, penetrating inside, evenly casts a shadow and creates a warm glow. The dome of the pavilion looks like giant scales, from which the whole structure becomes magical - like a fantasy scenery. The pavilion is original, therefore it does not need unusual angles. But it is worth thinking about the detail and largeness of the photo plan, focusing on one color, adding mystery with the help of a silhouette to get aesthetic photos.

  • Concrete jungle

    Chicago_photospot.jpg You can often hear that Chicago is a concrete jungle of glass and concrete that rises above the ground, but fortunately this is not the case. This is partly true, Chicago's Business Districts are filled to capacity with skyscrapers, miles of asphalt and a bit of rare greenery, but this is only in the business district, in addition to which there are a huge number of beautiful cozy areas, futuristic buildings, large and green parks and many other magnificent places. But it is also undeniable that the abundance of skyscrapers creates great scope for photo shoot ideas, both against the backdrop of the urban landscape and near individual buildings, each of which can have its own unique feature, the main thing is to show a little creativity and you will definitely get a lot of beautiful photos!

A repeating pattern with an unusual floating shape and absolute symmetry makes this place perfect for a photo shoot.
