Vegas Baby

Okee dokee, as I promised, here are some more photos from our Vegas trip. We swang by Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam too, but you won’t find many of “family shots”… not here, maybe later on facebook:)

Again kudos to Pete, for letting me borrow his fish eye and tilt lens.¬† Well, actually it’s not a tilt lens, it’s a damn sharp 80mm Carl Zeiss glass with tilt adapter. It was a bit tricky, because Pete is a Nikon guy (not that there is anything wrong with that:)) and I’m a Canon, so I had to use actually two adapters: one tilt adapter and one nikon-to-canon adapter. Bit tricky, huh? It was pretty cool experience, so cool that I decided to get Zeiss lenses and tilt adapter for myself. There are plenty of things to do in Vegas, I’d say top 3 are gambling, enjoying Vegas shows and eating at the buffets (more things to do in Vegas if you’re still a bachelor:D). I’m not a big gambler, we went to see Cirque de Soleil show and was eating almost every day @ the Vegas buffets, so somehow I had to burn those extra calories :] We decided to use the Strip as a treadmill and my photography equipment as weights¬†:)

Most of the time I was shooting @ full tilt and wide open @2.8.

For fisheye shots I cranked the aperture up to f8/f11 so it was sharp all the way:

Note: Cirque de Soleil performers don’t eat @ Vegas buffets on regular basis, and also because of that I consider that job as one of the best to have (besides the pilot of course).
