The Client

A greeting cards and wall decor self-assignment.

The Assignment

"Shooting scenics is not something I do as much as shooting flowers, table tops and human interest for my greeting cards. This image is out of the ordinary for me. I love trying to create images that are challenging and different from the portraits I photograph each day."

The Execution

"This image was photographed from the 31st floor restaurant balcony of The Hotel in the complex at Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas. I was balancing my camera on a concrete post to stabilize it while watching a storm roll in over the mountains to the desert floor north of the city of Las Vegas. I bracketed my exposure to make the most of the beautiful dark clouds and sky against the night lights of the Las Vegas strip. It was shot with a Canon 5D using a 24mm-75mm f-2.8 lens. I usually am in manual mode controlling both shutter speed and f-stop myself."

Post Production

"The image was processed in Photoshop and I used layers to lighten and darken certain areas to enhance it."

The Output

"I printed this image on my Epson 3800 printer using Red River Ultra Pro Satin 13x19 paper and also printed greeting cards for sale on Premium Matt Red River card stock. For many years I used labs to
print my cards until I discovered Red River greeting card stock at a photographic convention I attended. I loved the quality of the paper as well as the many varieties that were available such as River Linen and Greenpix 100% Recycled Photo Matte, both of which I also use. "
