Heading to Vegas for work and I would like to get some nice shots of Vegas at night...happens to be one of my favorite cities!!

Im new to the hobby and have a T3i and would be interested in any tips for getting some great shots of the strip / freemont at night.

Also... any tips on locations for great shots?

Thanks
D.

Bring a tripod.
If you don't have a light, travel tripod, pick up a gorillapod slr-zoom or focus for cheap (i think it's like $30-50).
As far as interiors of casinos, I like the Bellagio conservatory for photos. At night, you can get a great view from pretty much anywhere, but i've heard suggestions of going to the top of the parking lot at the Bellagio for some good views. Also, if you'd also like to have a nice dinner, get out onto the patio of "Comme Ca" at the Cosmopolitan. There is a beautiful view of the center strip area (Paris, Ballys, PH). If you are good at taking photos through windows, I'd suggest the bar at the Mandarin Oriental (in City Center next to Aria). Great views of the strip from there as well (we were sitting on the southern side, so we could see excalibur, mgm grand, etc.)

may be late but, I just shoot manual at ISO 800-1600 on rare occasions with my aperture at F2 and shutter speed at 50-250. I am able to get good shots from a moving car during night time, one of the joys of vegas is it's bright at the strip.

Check out my Vegas night shots on Flickr. All EXIF info is there, then ask any questions. I may be there myself this week.

I'm not sure what kind of lenses you have, but you might want to look into renting some glass for your trip. With all the details in the buildings and the lights on the strip, you'd benefit from lenses with some good resolving power and color/contrast.

I am going later this month and I am REALLY trying to arrange to check out the Neon Graveyard ... Neon Museumexternal link

I might just end up taking my entire bag as my carry-on and annoying the hell outta my friends by disappearing and shooting on and off :-)
