View Full Version : I had no idea Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas had such nice spots

First one so far, the hotel lobby windows: Great spot for silhouettes, brides looking out, etc. More processing to come, I'll be working on these wedding shots today. This was my first official, planned "window shot" - I hope to try more, different styles and ideas.

Do you have to get persmission to shoot there?

Actually it's the least stringent resort I've shot in; you can even sometimes get permission to shoot at the craps tables, provided there are no other people at that table.
May I request that this thread be moved to the correct forum? I accidentally put it in the talk section but it belongs in the sharing section.
Anyway, next scene....reenacting some ideas the bride had:

Outside having fun, they're getting more comfortable at this point:

Love the processing on the first one. I'd correct the photo slightly so that the frame isn't tilted as much.
#3 - you cut her off at an odd area, her face isn't lit too well and the background isn't the most appealing. I'm sure you have other photos like the rest that would better replace that one.
Vegas does look like a nice place for some good photos.

Adding a few more, now that I've finished processing the set:

Your second set is much better.
#1 - there is a lot of back. It might be a different perspective, but getting them from the front/side would give a better story to the image.
#2 - has a nice idea, but your backlight detracts from the couple. Might want to burn that in more so they stand out more as the light competes with the brides dress.
#3 - make it a little tighter on the left side.
#4 - dodge the hubby's face a little bit to being out the key focus on that moment.

Your 1st pic on this last post, what sort of PP did you use. I see you have a few like it. Is there a sepia tone added?

Great shots! You're right there are some very nice backdrops at Mandalay. Picture number 4 could be cropped a bit more to remove the cashier area on the right and maybe clone out the ATM sign on the wall.
