My 6 Favorite SoHo Shoot Locations: Part II

Last Winter, I shared the first installment of My 6 Favorite SoHo Shoot Locations with you guys and have loved hearing that so many of you who ventured into NYC have scouted them out.

As I mentioned in my initial post, SoHo has become a 'home base' for all of my blog content. It's just one of those New York City areas where there's so much in such a small span, making it ideal for my schedule. Because I work full time, I only shoot 1-2 times per month, which means that my shoot days are usually marathons, styling 8-12 outfits in one day!

Today I'm sharing 6 new SoHo shoot locations with you that my photographer Angelene and I visit regularly each month!

1 / Ted Baker near
Wooster + Prince

Ironically I only discovered this spot recently, and as it turns out, it's just across the street from one of my favorites - Tibi. This neutral spot has a ton of texture, and can be shot from so many different angles.

It also has a cute little doorway, which you could easily utilize for a totally different look (who doesn't love a 2 in 1?!).

Depending on how you edit, the walls here can sometimes look a bit 'muddy', so I simply tone them to a pretty pastel with the brush tool in Lightroom.  (This post also shot here!)

2 / Le York SoHo (Corner
of Crosby + Broome)

Le York is the cutest little spot less than a five minute walk away from Ted Baker above. The building is a warm neutral with a yellow undertone, making this spot a great one for shooting brighter and bolder colors.

You also have the option of the crosswalk right there, perfect for that quintessential NY street style shot!

If you pop across the street to the actual building, you can also get some closer up shots like here or here.  (This post also shot here!)

3 / Addidas near
Spring + Greene

In SoHo, each building is better than the next! This spot is a dream for my pastel-toned feed and of course, aside from the color, what I love about it is its depth and texture. The columns, steps and grating give you so much to look at (I typically steer clear of plain walls with no texture).

This spot pairs perfectly with  ivories, taupes and browns thanks to its second color (a soft, muted mauvy brown). (This post also shot here!)

4 / IRO (Corner of
Mercer + Broome)

Ang and I had been shooting directly across the street from IRO for over a year before realizing what we had been missing here!

What I love about this corner spot is the beautifully painted fire escape that adds a soft pop of color to an otherwise neutral spot.

You can shoot up close here or in the crosswalk, and if you pop across the street and wait patiently, you could get the perfect NYC taxicab shot. (This post also shot here!)

5 / Harney & Sons near Crosby + Broome

Though I shoot here year-round, this pretty teal-green tea shop is my favorite in the Springtime when all of the blooms are out. It's a bolder, darker color, so I typically try to wear neutrals or complimentary colors when shooting here.

You can use the doorway which is two-toned, shoot on an angle to grab the texture from the columns, or shoot from a bit farther away like in this post to blur the background but still keep that pretty teal color.  (This post also shot here)

6 / Rintintin (Corner of
Elizabeth + Spring)

The crazy thing about SoHo is that just when you think you've explored every inch of an area, you realize that just around the corner is something brand new.

We ventured a few blocks east and found this cute little corner spot. Make sure to get here early though if you don't want people in the background, because once the restaurant opens it gets busy!

This spot has a lot of depth, which I love, and it's fair mix of colors. I'd go with neutrals or something soft for this location. (This post also shot here!)
