New York State Of Mind

New York State Of Mind

Taken in Vegas at the New York New York casino. Which would explain the New York theme. My first trip ever to Las Vegas was for a birthday party (could have happily been my last) and I happened to stay at the the New York New York Casino. It was my introduction to casino mindgames and how stupid expensive Las Vegas is unless you are gambling and that’s a whole other level of expense. One of the joyful things large…

Fountain Spray

Fountain Spray

Shot this in Vegas with the fountains from the Bellagio Hotel. Been in a weird editing mood lately. Felt like doing more, HDR-esq photos and going over the top. I shift from reality based super clean to going from it’s my world and I’ll make it look however the hell I want. Maybe part of it is the fact I live in Thailand where reality sometimes seems a lifetime ago with some of the stuff I have seen in the…

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…

Hard Rock Cafe – Las Vegas

Hard Rock Cafe – Las Vegas

I have shot this sign before. I’m a sucker for a Gibson Les Paul done in Sunburst. As for the restaurant itself can’t comment as I have never been in it but I have been in the Hard Rock Casino and thats got a lot of cool memorabilia in it if you are a rock music buff. This was shot on my Olympus EM1 at 24mm. Took 5 images and did the HDR merge and then the usual Photoshop fun…

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. Lots of layer masks going on with this one to bring out the areas I wanted and others I didn’t. 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…

Paris Via Vegas

Paris Via Vegas

If someone was to ask me one of the least likely places I would go Las Vegas ranks high up there. It’s not my favorite place on earth. I just get sent there for work once a year. Yes, I have an okay time but I could happily live without ever going there again. One of the amazing things I discovered as I walked down the Las Vegas Strip is that if you have a camera on a tripod no…

The Downward Spiral

The Downward Spiral

Points as usual if you get the title reference. I’ll give you a hint NIN. This was shot in Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.¬†Well, the shots in Caesars Palace Mall. Is nothing but high-end, luxury retail stores. I am not what you call their target demographic. While I can buy their goods; this site is run by a man who thinks the latest fashion is a concert t-shirt and shorts. I look like a slob most of the time. I…

People of Vegas

People of Vegas

These are random shots over a couple days. Some were taken of random people around Las Vegas and others where people I work with. One image is very similar to the one I published yesterday, in fact it was after he finish texting his wife. I still liked it. I do have to tell the story of the monochrome image. The woman is my friend who is a meeting planner who has been featured in major magazines. She refuses to…

Texting Home

Texting Home

This is someone who works for me. He was texting his wife back home after we finished dinner for the evening. I wanted images shot out the window and had my mini tripod with me. I am not blaming the Kirin Light Beers consumed with our sushi dinner at Roku Sushi but I forgot to set the ISO on the camera at 80 and a shutter delay. Normally I am not thrilled with people in my images. In this case…
