Walking up and down Hollywood Blvd is must for any street photographer. Hidden Figures is more than a Hollywood hit movie. It can also be a street musician hiding in plain sight.
For beginners, or those looking to expand their knowledge of street photography, the Los Angeles Center of Photography (LACP) is a good resource. They periodically sponsor all-day street photography workshops in and around LA, including just off the Boulevard from their Center.
I describe street photography as a “people safari” and Hollywood is the ultimate “hunting” location
