I’ve always had a difficult time photographing in Downtown LA. I don’t know whether I felt intimidated or just couldn’t find my footing with its big wide streets. This past weekend I spent much of three days photographing downtown with my, now common, two cameras / two prime lenses style. For the wider streets of LA, instead of primarily using the 35 mm, I found my stride with the 50mm. (Of course these are taken with my Olympus OM-Ds, so the focal lengths are 17mm and 25mm respectively)
Love the work. Funny, but I was there one of those three days and I was shooting with a 12-42mm zoom at 12mm all of the time and wishing I could go a little wider (yet stay rectilinear). Differences make the world go round. Cheers!
I’d love to see your images from the day. I shot a variety from 12mm to 45mm, but my biggest keepers seemed to be from the 35mm and 50mm.
