Leading lines again, this is Los Angeles, California.This is where I live now.So you have all these leading lines, crazy sky, beautiful downtown Los Angeles, crazy light.Again, this formula I use, whether it's Paris or LA, over and over and over again.Jumping over to Florence.Now this was a shot where there was tons of people on the bridge I took a NE 1000 filter to erase everybody.And I even changed the sky.But I love the end result because it really communicates the rawness of Florence.If you would see the before photo with all the crowd there without the NE 1000 it wouldn't be a good photo.You know, you are trying to show the beauty of the city.You're trying to show it at its best.And that's what's really important.All right, so now that I've shown you some of my sort of secret composition,let's talk about camera settings and what are the best options when to shoot a cityscape.
