I am not much of a gambler, so most of my time at the Four Winds Casino Resort in New Buffalo, Indiana, was devoted to photography.
One feature that caught my eye was the ceiling in the lobby of the resort.
If you look closely, you'll see that this image isn't perfectly symmetrical. However, it was the best that I was going to get during that visit.
I had just finished setting up my camera. I was sitting on floor in the center of the lobby, had the lens focused and the camera set to bracket three consecutive exposures (to account for the dynamic range of light in the scene). Just as I was about to make further minor adjustments to the framing, security fast approached. As the security guard was explaining that photography is not permitted, I was silently clicking through the sequence of exposures with my cable release. Fortunately, the camera was in Live View mode--which meant that there was absolutely no indication that any pictures were being captured. The camera was dead silent.
Ordinarily, I would have studied the pictures on the back of my camera and continued to make minor refinements to improve the picture. In this situation, I was lucky to get a photograph at all!
