Scouting out a location is invaluable before a shoot. Here are two images I took in a Victorian house here in Johannesburg that is now a museum. Excuse the quality - these was shot without flash at very high ISO.
This particular location is small, dark and crammed with antiques and books. I am going to be photographing a model in here and I can see already that lighting and space is going to be a major challenge.
The shoot is on 12 May so look out for posts on this one!
