Waster Dance

Waster Dance

I shot these while I was in Las Vegas last year. These are the Bellagio Fountains that are in front of the Bellagio Hotel and Casino on the Vegas Strip. They do nightly shows, not sure about daytime as I am usually working so no idea if they do it then. They change up the theme periodically and they set it to music that is piped through speakers. I know they are scheduled and you can tell its about to…

Shadowy Walkway

Shadowy Walkway

This was shot at the Venetian and it took awhile to get. I didn’t want anyone in the frame so I had to wait for people to move out it. When you are shooting long exposures this can either be a problem or not. If someone walks through quick enough they won’t appear. If they don’t then they are a blur in the shot. Sometimes this is nice sometimes its not. In this case I didn’t want them. I used…

Tower Of The Doge

Tower Of The Doge

Another one from the Venetian in Las Vegas. This is supposed to mimic an Italian courtyard with the tower rising above it. Wasn’t sure about this image.

I think in total I used something like 6 layers to get the final effect and I’m still not 100% happy with it. Still, its something I can live with and the tower…

Faux Venice

Faux Venice

The Venetian in Las Vegas is one of the nicer casino’s and hotels on the strip. The entire place is designed to be like being in Venice. If you had never been to Venice I guess you could believe it. While I haven’t personally been there I have been to Europe enough to know the difference between a chlorinated canal versus the real thing with centuries old buildings. Still, it makes for some nice images. The little story I will…

Poseidon Rising

Poseidon Rising

No idea if this is Poseidon or not. I just like the image so I’m going with it. One of the problems with shooting in Las Vegas is that there is so much other stuff around your primary focus area. You have a choice to work with it and bring it into focus or take the crop tool and perform radical surgery. I went with the first option, bring it into focus. I really liked the water cascading down from…

And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.

And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.

Who knew a long exposure of a escalator could look cool? This was totally a random shot that I took as I was walking down Las Vegas Blvd. It was an interesting place to setup. To my right were a group of touts who apparently were treating their various medical conditions with some sort of herbal remedy. I felt I could have been treated just by standing there. To my left were a group of touts who hand out the…
