Real Hollywood

Backlots and soundstages can be found all over Los Angeles. Those simulations are amazing in their depth of detail.

Count me as an aficionado of the real thing. That is the city standing in for itself. Currently, there’s no better fictional representation of the actual city of Los Angeles than the TV show Bosch.

Fictional characters placed in their real environment without adornment is a revelation to watch.

I try to use the same approach with my “real people” portrait sessions in real places as opposed to decorated sets. That means when I want a real “Hollywood look” I just use the real Hollywood.
