Las Vegas, Nevada

During WPPI, Photofocus set up a fun photowalk on the Las Vegas strip. We only made it from the MGM to the New York New York, but we had lots of fun shooting. As I have been experimenting with street photography, I took the chance to add a flash and see what I could do.
I loved the leading lines and bright lights in this scene. After shooting some normal street photography, I grabbed someone from the group and had her old my off camera flash at the bottom of the stairs. As this gentleman walked down the stairs, I shot with a slow shutter to show his motion and used the flash to freeze that action. I loved the result. I think it captures his motion while keeping him sharp and distinguishable.
This is a location I hope to head back to on a busier night to get more street photography in.
