Look at the positive side, not Chris backside which he calls Saint Andreas. :D Come march it should be a fabulous wildflower season in the desert an hour East of Redlands.
If you really want to shoot fast film, why not shoot at Barney's Beanery in West Hollywood. Interesting place and interesting clientele. Food isn't bad either. If you smile and wink at the bouncer he'll make sure the bruises look manly and no bones actually get broken.
Even Hollywood Blvd at night should be interesting.
At night or in a bar you could use 3200 but daylight (without a storm) with the smog is usually f11/film speed, on a clear day sunny16.
Holy Jim Canyon is dear to my heart, I don't think they've had a flood like this since '62
If you've got the 4WD and weather permits, you could go up the road and get some shots of gritty washed out cabins.
They'd look good on any film, but I think storm-ravaged shots on 3200 would be be an appropriate combination.
Eh, I can't get into a bar alone yet. :whistling:
My very religious aunt has expressed her opinions on taking me to any bar ages and ages ago.
I am in LA, to narrow it down even more, North Hollywood, one street over from the Sunset Strip. If you wanna know more... PM me. ;D
