I really like the "Luciana Flower Comb" and "Augustina Flower Vine" photos on this site. They're a bit "Laura Nyro in New York in the late sixties." The lighting contrast and the dark background and the small hit of color from the lipstick are very appealing to me. I'm getting married and would like to hire a photographer who can produce shots like this in his/her sleep, but I don't know what to search for -- what terminology, etc. "Goth" is not what I want, and "vintage" is too broad. Would "chiaroscuro" get me anywhere? [more inside]

Who is this? And where can I buy prints?
I just found out that I'll be in LA from Saturday-Tuesday. I'll have Saturday and part of Sunday free, and I'd like to take some nice photographs and/or a photowalk. I've heard people don't walk in LA.....I'll be on foot, and staying in West Hollywood (I've never been to LA.) Where should I go for awesome pics, and how should I get there? [more inside]
