This commercial photo shoot took place at the Wynn Las Vegas. I love shooting at the Wynn and I’ve shot there many many times … even the bell hop remembered me … and my bags and bags of photography gear lol. My experiences at the Wynn have always been top notch from the time I pull in to the valet to the time they quickly retrieve my car and help me load my photo gear when the shoot is complete. I always get first class treatment all the way which is one of the reason I confidently recommend them to my clients for everything from headshots to boudoir photography to commercial projects such as this one.
Even after 30+ years as a professional photographer I’ll admit I still get a excited on every single photo shoot I do. Every commercial shoot and every client is uniquely different which keeps me on my photography toes … and I love it!
Making the Image
It took me about 90 minutes to get the lights just right. Since this was a high key image (pure white background) and also has a lot of white in the image including the beautiful dress the model wore, I had to not only get the perfect exposure on the subject without blowing out the detail in the image, I also had to eliminate shadows and color cast from the room itself. It was a challenge but I love photography challenges.
Lighting is everything in photography. I like to get the image right in camera … The old saying, I’ll fix it in post, isn’t the way I work. tell a friend
After the shoot I took a few images of these beautiful luxury shoes and of course a few amazing sunsets views of the Las Vegas Strip.
I loved doing this commercial photography project and I and the client are extremely pleased with the images I produced. I hope you enjoyed this look behind the scenes into my life a Las Vegas photographer.
