The Daniels Visit Vegas! 2017 Edition

by dav.d

The 2017 football season was not kind to BYU football. My family are big fans and we went to Vegas to watch BYU play UNLV. We were able to meet up with family from Arizona and since I am the family’s official photographer I took some touristy photos as well as the family photos. Little Claire was there and she had her own little photo shoot in the hotel room since the window lighting was perfect and she was hamming it up for the camera.

The only way I get in these photos is to hand my camera to someone and hope things are in focus. People assume that the camera does all the work, but in the wrong hands the photo just won’t work. It’s like rolling the dice and hoping things work out. See a Vegas pun!

When walking the strip, you look for the right light, and for an empty sidewalk. It doesn’t happen much. It’s pretty busy for a city. Although during the day, people are still hung over in their hotel rooms so it isn’t so bad.

Who needs Italy when you have the Venetian? I’m sure the real Venice is much more cool although their gondoliers don’t go inside with their boats.

And the bathrooms had a huge ring light around the mirror. I need to get a huge ring light, I think that would be awesome for portraits. I think I saw a Kardashian bring a large ring light to the DMV for their driver license photo.
