REVIEW: Peterson Automotive Museum on Wilshire blvd. – photographed by Richard Dewhirst

This image is a building. In fact, it’s the Peterson Automotive Museum on Wilshire. It went through a major renovation in 2015 and you can read more about it here: The before/after photograph is quite interesting. The new look is amazing, especially at night. I wanted to be one of the first to capture this dramatic building and so I shot it a little while after sunset, using a tripod and a long exposure to get the vehicle light trails. (Rich)

Tools: What do you prefer to work with, physically and otherwise?

My kit bag is typically packed with my Canon DSLR, lenses (F2.8 24-70mm and F2.8 70-200mm are my workhorses), tripod, speedlite, reflector, and various filters. For post-production, I lean on Photoshop CS6.

Indulgence: Do you cook?

Yes and I’m getting more adventurous too.

What is your favorite food indulgence?

Tough to call so I’ll go with two: 1) Authentic Spanish Tapas, 2) Indian food. OK, you twisted my arm so I’ll add Sees Candies and In & Out as my guilty pleasures.

What is your favorite restaurant in LA where you indulge yourself?

I’m going to have to say The Kings Head in Santa Monica. It has provided consistently great times for me over the years and it satisfies my occasional cravings for an authentic full English Breakfast or Cornish Pasty.
