Photographer Vincent LaForet took his camera and a helicopter and captured the City of Angels at night like no one has ever done before. The detail in each shot is unbelievable and the colors almost feel unreal. It’s like seeing a neon glow spread itself all across the giant, beautiful city that is Los Angeles.
Click on the magnifying glass to zoom and see these images up close at full screen because the detail is absolutely phenomenal. It’s the only way to do them justice.
Los Angeles is special because there are so many different experiences, which can sometimes create so many little Los Angeleses. Each neighborhood can feel completely different from the next (partly because they can be miles and miles apart) so it’s just jaw dropping to see all of LA bathed in their own beauty all in one photo. Spectacular.
Vincent Laforet is a director, photographer, and a pioneer in tilt-shift, aerial photography, and in HD DSLR cameras for shooting film.
