STREET Life of Hollywood...MEET AT HIGHLAND METRO OUTSIDE (A SLICE OF LIFE)

We will buddy up and walk the area a few feet apart as to not draw attention to our group but we will be close enough to each other to know where the other persons in the group are.  ASK YOURSELF WHAT DRAWS PEOPLE HERE,  WHAT ARE THEY LOOKING AT...AND YOU'LL KNOW WHAT TO GET IMAGES OF.  Don't just take 1 image from one vantage point shoot a few from a different perspective (horizonta & vertical) a mini photo essay of whatever you see...remember there are basically 3 types of images (wide, medium and detail) use these to convey your feeling of your subject.

    I enjoyed meeting some of the members and had a good time. It was crowded (as always , I suppose), but gave many opportunities for some great street shots!

    nice meet upbut a little too crowded for me

    1 · August 24

    • Chris F.

      The crowds are always a problem, but this was really crowded .. On the upside,, it makes you work harder and forces you to change up your style .. Which is a good thing,, Moves you out of your safety zone. I could see a difference in my images . It was slight but it was there .

  • Jori S.

    I did like the idea that there was a central location where everybody knew where it was so I have no trouble getting to the place which was nice

    August 23

    • Suga R.

      Thanks, Larry!

  • Veronica A.

    What kind of flash equipment, if used...is recommended. Or is there enough light to bump up ISO.

    August 23

    • larry a.

      Veronica...keep it natural! But if you insist on flash use a STRAW filter too give color back to the flesh that has been taken away look at my statement above for SUGA Ray! Use a Flash with a TILT HEAD...that way you can feather your subject. Bring your brightest lens. If you only have F4...the name of the game for you is SEARCHING FOR LIGHT!

      August 23

    • larry a.

      or bumping up the ISO

    I know where the metro steps are. Where is "A Slice of Life"; near the metro entrance?. Is that a Pizza place?

    August 21

    • Galen

      Get off at the Highland Station, go up to the sidewalk at the entrance and behold Larry will be there out front. "Slice of Life" is not referring to a restaurant, but to the variety of people on the streets of Hollywood. Sorry I can't be there but have fun.

      1 · August 21

  • Galen

    Sorry. was looking forward to this, but alas work calls. So until the next meetup see you then.

    Unfortunately, I will be out of the LA area this weekend. Very disappointed, but hopefully I'll make the next Hollywood Street Life adventure. Have a great night.

    This is one instance where the group policy of not paying for shots does not apply .. Ordinarily it is bad policy to pay on the street for shots.. This is not one of those times .. these are performers ..

    1 · August 14

    • larry a.

      See you there Chris F. haha so many Chris's around we have to use Last name initials

  • larry a.

    This is the place to get your moments of EVERYDAY people trying to make a living in one of the busiest parts of Town. The foot traffic here is amazing, the scenery, the lights, the attractions draws Tourist from all over the Globe to the GLITTER & SPARKLE of Hollywood. These street performers are part of the Night Life PERFORMING FOR YOU...if you choose to stand in their circle be prepared to offer a buck for their performance in exchange for some outstanding shots UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL! If you don't want to PAY get out of the circle, stand off to the side and get your pics...remember they are trying to make a living entertaining you. Please remember to be RESPECTFUL at all times and everything will be fine. Common SENSE and a little Street Savy is the RULE OF THE DAY!

    I live in Hollywood, so I will just meet you all at the H&H station. Come to think of it, why not just have everyone meet at the H&H station?

    August 4

    • larry a.

      I thought there might be some that didn't want to pay the parking fees and just drive to the North Holly metro and go by train. If there are others that feel like meeting in front of the highland station...WE CAN DO THAT...LET ME KNOW!

      August 5

    This is what we in store for your evening...HAVE A LOOK!
