Walt Disney Concert Hall
It’s one of the most photographed buildings in Los Angeles, if not the whole of the USA, so how can you capture an image of Frank Gehry’s masterpiece that stands out from the crowd? Unless you specifically want to take a strongly contrasting photo, most professionals advise against shooting in the middle of the day, to avoid the glare of the sun bouncing off the reflective steel surface. Try coming early in the morning, at dusk, or even late at night to make the most of the softer light conditions, and try snapping a few shots with people in to get a sense of scale.
