If ever you find yourself in Las Vegas but wish you were in Venice… then head on over to The Venetian! It’s an incredible place and probably one of my favorite Hotel/Casinos on the strip.
Last year – I learned all about how the Venetian came to be.
I woke up at 5am to head down to take these photos because there wouldn’t be a heard of people in my shots. Using the new Nikon D800 and a 14-24mm lens, I was finally able to capture the essence of this well crafted “home away from home.”
These images were adjusted using CameraRaw in Lightroom. My goal for the editing process of these images was to show the lighting and the essence of this indoor experience.
Love the photos! Makes me want to hit up the strip again!
Heck yeah! Always something to do on the strip!
Sweet! I love how you were able to capture so much more with that awesome camera and lens! Seriously loving how vibrant the colors are and can’t get over how the lens wraps around the room in the top pictures.
It really is a sweet lens! Seriously!! And the D800 with all those megapixels really help show all the detail! Sorry to get in your shot, I was just getting into the zone. 🙂
Now I can see the new images! I love the first three and the one with the gondola. That wide angle lens really makes for a dramatic feeling. The gondola one is just so cool. Nice work, Dustin! It was worth getting up early for, no?
Those are my favorites too! The lens was magic for me in The Venetian for sure! So much to take in! Makes you want a wide angle huh?! But, it was worth getting up early for because no one bothered us this year which was GREAT!!
I love them! All of them! Great job.
Thanks, Morgan!!! Does it make you a little nostalgic for Vegas?!
