Choose famous monuments.

Include people in your subject.

Many photographers like to remove other people from their shots, however, people can add a creative element to your composition. So to give a little life to your image include a few people near or around the subject but never flood the subject with people to outcast the aesthetic and emphasis.

Familiarize the monument and its surroundings.

Before shooting the desired monument, visit it and observe the appearance during morning or evening light and determine when you can get low angle light and shadows that will add depth and interest to your image.

Get the perfect composition.

Creativity comes from within, the photographer just need to get the composition such as the kind of light, the right angle and time of day or night that the monument be taken that can make you express yourself creatively.

Shoot the subject a little further from the base.

Once you are a little further from the subject you can creatively zoom in and out your way, while tilting your camera back and shoot away with a portrait orientation.
