    aside from the obvious (i.e. girls), what should I shoot? Anything out of the standard strip picture?

    And turbodude, tell me where to go and how to get in ;)

    The most original pictures ever:

    Vegas Sign
    Lights
    Bellagio Water fountain
    Hotels
    Inside the venetian


    OR...You could walk up and stand a few feet from the high high dollar poker players and take pictures of them in action. That might be an interesting shot..

    Take plenty of pictures in the actual casino, they will be an interesting subject. Make sure to get some of the security guards to, make them feel appreciated in their duties.

    sent a pm turbodude, thanks!

    I am supposed to see Ka and Criss Angel shows, but might try to sell the CA tickets because reviews and friends said it sucks :/

    I am going to San Diego a few days after and want to shoot their safari thing so that's why I am carrying my camera equipment... I'll see how drunk I am to take pictures

    Thanks for suggestions, I'll try the 50 inside, might get good shots (my 10-20 and 18-200 will need flash:/

    I went to the media invite for the CA show and yes it does fucking suck. Even though he is an acquaintance of mine, the show is down right dreadful. There is no Cirque about it, its like a fucking back stage magic show with its only highlight being a remake of the TESLA coil illusion.

    btw PM replied

    out of Vegas, nwo in San Diego..

    did not take one picture in Vegas, missed my connection in New York, so only had one night in Vegas... went to Tryst which sucked bad.

    There was a guy throwing $1 bills on the dance floor and tearing a few bills too, like he was super rich and had money to spare.

    I got to play a little blackjack at least, and went to bed at 7am.. that's Vegas!

    I'm actually in La Jolla, surfing and tomorrow is Wild Animal park, then I'm leaving for either Utah-Nevada for work or back in Quebec home.

    I absolutely love this place, the beach 30 seconds away

    I had a 200mm and it wasn't enough, would have liked to have 300+ to shoot. Unless you take the 50$+ safari truck tour, the little tram thing doesn't get you close enough.

    Sea World will be next time.

    I will miss the weather (and surf) because the weather is very bad this tinme of yea rin Montreal (30 degrees and rain/snow)
