Destinations for first time at LAX

Wed May 29, 2019 5:54 am

I’m really into aviation and planespotting but my aviation photography hobby is amateur at best. I use my iPhone XS Max to take the photos and I’m going to be at LAX for the first time this August. I’m hoping to get a lot of good pictures of the arrivals and departures. What are the best planespotting destinations that I should go to knowing that I’m not that experienced and that I don’t use a high tech camera that can zoom in super far?
Thank you!

If you just want to snap some photos without much concern for the lighting and such, then go to the In'n'Out on the north side of the airport (location #4 in the link Jehan provided) and the Proud Bird on the south side (location #2).

At the In'n'Out (more specifically, the part across the street), the aircraft will be almost directly overhead. At the Proud Bird (specifically, the rear patio or the grassy area behind the restaurant), they'll be a few hundred feet away.
I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".
