Photos of L.A. is the personal blog of Robert De Anda, Director of Photography for L.A. Pro Shots Inc. It is my island of sanity away from the sometimes limiting confines of my commercial work. It is photography for me, not a client, which I share with fellow Angelenos. For the past decade, Los Angeles has been my ever willing model, this is our evolving love story. How to contact me: You can call me at (323) FILM LENS, or follow me on Twitter @lascenescom - Thanks for stopping by.

Cloudy Dusk Hollywood - Street Photography
Nikon D300, Nikkor 35mm G, f/1.8, 1/30th, ISO 800
I have been under an intense amount of stress lately. Although it was cloudy tonight, I still wanted to relax my mind behind the lens. I live for the blue in the sky at dusk; it is my happy place. I patiently waited for my rendevouz with the light, like a young lover waiting for his girl. Here is a shot from Hollywood and Vine of the Redbury Building, and of the Capitol Records tower across the street. Both were shot with a plus one expsoure compensation to capture the blue that was still trapped in the sky.
