Photographer Challenges Herself To Shoot In ‘Ugly’ Locations To Prove It’s All About The Skill, And Here’s The Result

Posted by Iveta

A good way to put your photography skills to the test is to find an ugly location and try to make the best of it. Following on from a previous post, we have another photographer who has taken on the ‘ugly location challenge.’ Kelsey Maggert, 22, from Indiana has created some seriously awesome images with limited physical resources at her disposal.

Coming from a small town, unremarkable in its ordinariness, Kelsey has to use all her creativity to maximize the potential of her backdrops. Using a Nikon D750, she can make the local KFC, Walmart, Hobby Lobby and a variety of gas stations into incredibly artistic scenes.

“I live in a really tiny town,” Kelsey told National Post. “If you want to be a photographer here, you have to make use of ugly locations.”

Scroll down to see some of Kelsey’s work, and let us know what you think in the comments!
