A location doesn't have to be "perfect" or large to make do (using angles, aperture, etc. can help make up for the imperfections), but picking a location that fits the type of feel you're going for is step number one. Do you like nature or urban? A lot of negative space or a busier backdrop? Lots of color or a neutral palette? Remember, there's also the time of year, the time of day, type of weather, direction of light, and various other factors that will affect the feel of your photo/film as well (check my other blog posts on these).
