When you walk up to the building and see this sign, don’t be suprised it someone yells, “Yo, you want a slice?”

Photographer’s Notes:


Camera Used:

  • Nikon D700

Lens Used:

  • Nikon 50mm f/1.4

Perhaps you have heard of “The Sunny Day f/16 Rule”? It states that the correct exposure for anything front lit by the direct sun will always be f/16 with the shutter speed matching the ISO or any equivalent. For example, you have the ISO set at 100, so your shutter speed will be 1/100th of a second and the aperture will be f/16. Any equivalent means just that, any equivalent shutter speed and aperture combination that will give you the same exposure as f/16 – ISO and aperture match. For example lets assume you are using ISO 100, so the correct settings would be f/16@ 1/100, OR f/11 @ 1/200 OR f/8.0 @ 1/400, OR f/5.6 @ 1/800, f/4.0 @ 1600, f/2.8 @ 3200, f/2.0 @ 6400, and so forth.

So to give the pizza the shallow depth of field in bright daylight, the shutter speed was pushed to the max of 1/8000 of a second which is the fastest speed available on the Nikon D700.

When Joe Vitale of New York City’s original Joe’s Pizza opened his first LA spot in Santa Monica, he wanted to bring the original Greenwich Village’s no-nonsense, frills-free type of pizza that East Coasters love. Overall, this might be the best pizza in all of LA.
