I have been to Vegas tons of times. But only a few to try and capture HDR’s. Vegas can be tricky…it all depends if you want tourists in your shots. You can go the long exposure route at sunset or wake up at dawn and then you only have to deal with a few drunk people stumbling around to get back to their hotel. I like dawn..its quieter and a bit safer! This morning I targeted my shots and was walking back to my hotel and stopped in at Caesar’s Palace. Only a few people to dodge for this lobby shot. Vegas is great for HDR’ing…great shots outside, lobbies, hallways…I have even seen cool elevator areas I’d like to capture!
Not often do you get multiple HDR’s from a hotel stay! I have posted quite a few pics from this visit. If you had read my previous posts. It was an early 4:30 AM wake up to snag these HDR’s. It was me and the cleaners walking around the hotel lobby. Kudos Houston Hilton….not only a nice hotel, but also great for photographers!!
