Going to the Wynn Las Vegas...photography?

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by helmet155, Oct 24, 2005.

  1. I'm heading out tomorrow morning for Vegas, staying at Wynn for a business meeting until Friday afternoon...

    I should have Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night for doing some photography of the lights, glitz, glamour, etc. The days will be way too busy to do much other than be a stiff in a suit.

    How camera / tripod friendly is Vegas? The last thing I want is some drunken goons smashing my gear and me for it...

    I would like to get some pictures of the standard stuff, just to work on technique: bellagio fountain for sure, the view from the room, maybe some extended exposures with the lens right against the window overlooking the strip...

    This is all last minute so if you have any suggestions please let me know

    Thanks!

    Brett,

    I didn't try anything else, but you don't see many DSLR's.

    It's crowded on the strip at night. I wouldn't use a tripod unless you know you'll have an area that is somewhat protected. Go out one night with a handheld setup and recon the area for a tripod session the next.

    you probably can use a tripod from your hotel balconey, but if you want to take pictures of vegas at night, handheld, small lens 17-55, 24-120
    may be ok

    i have been going to vegas for many years, it's a better place when you look like you belong there

    have a great time

    no cameras inside casinos, so if you are taking photos you need to stash camera if you want to go to casino

    Brett,

    Vegas is VERY camera-friendly. Everyone and their mother has one and flashes go off every other second. You can take photos everywhere but the casino, as someone pointed out.

    Have fun and bring back lots of photos. Next time I'm in Vegas (and it'll my 10th or so :biggrin:) I'd like to stay at the Wynn as well.

    This is about all I got...I didn't have a lot of time to be taking pictures, lots of working and networking.
