We’ll be spending 3 full days exploring the best Los Angeles has to offer. The focus will be on the city’s contemporary architecture; from museums and public art to the unique architecture of Culver City’s Hayden Tract.
A few days before we meet in person, we’ll come together for an online presentation with tips on composition. Once the in-person portion wraps, I’ll share a post-processing tutorial with you. You’ll have a couple of weeks to work on your images and then we’ll meet up online once again for a review session of each participant’s work.
PRESENTATION: Monday, February 27, 8pm CT
REVIEW SESSION: Thursday, March 16, 8pm CT
These are just some of the locations we’ll see. A more detailed itinerary will be sent out a couple of weeks prior to us meeting in-person.
We’ll be walking quite a bit! Please be prepared with good shoes, water, snacks and travel light!
I recommend a mid-range zoom around the 24-70mm range + a 70-200mm telephoto (the telephoto will likely be your most used lens). If you’d like to bring an additional lens, a wide angle, 12-24mm range, may be useful in a couple of locations (most notably the Getty Center and Bradbury Building).
Friday & Sunday we’ll be inside museums – THEY DO NOT ALLOW BACKPACKS (unless you’re willing to check them or they’re small and you can wear them on the front of you). So, I recommend a good crossbody bag or be willing to check your backpack at each location.
The same goes for tripods. We’ll be shooting in the evenings/blue hour on Friday and Saturday, so you’ll need to bring a tripod with you for the day. You will NOT need the tripod on Sunday.
Given all the walking and museums I highly recommend a small travel tripod. There’s a high likelihood you’ll need to check it at the museums unless you can get it inside your bag.
