    Art Deco Hotels

    I will be in Miami, for 2 shows, this month. I plan on bringing my camera to use during my days off. I'd like to do a series of the art deco buildings. I have no knowledge of the area. Anyone know where I should go and, any specific buildings to shoot? Thanks.

    Thanks, Bev, Mike & Josh. I'll be staying in South Miami which, I imagine, isn't too far from South Beach. One of my shows is in Coconut Grove, about 7 minutes from where I'm staying.

    Ocean Drive in particular, though there are some notable hotels just a bit north on Collins.

    What is particularly great about Ocean drive is you will find a park on the opposite side, which gives tremendous freedom for moving around and setting up shots. Bring a tripod as night shots with a neon are a blast.

    Re: Art Deco Hotels

    I guess I'll be going to South Beach.
    I always have a tripod. My camera can't be used without one. I hadn't thought of night shots, though. I'm shooting black & white, only, this trip.

    If your analog technology can handle it and if you can expand beyond hotels, get a few photos of this building and remove the ugly pole and wires. May have to go digital for this.



    Also, original hotel interiors are worth a study. Note the mezzanine.



    This has been echoed in recently built hotels on a larger and spiffier scale.

    Eddie,
    You need to check out the Hotel Victor. It is on South Beach. The lobby is very cool with a tank full of jellyfish in the lobby,,, they glow at night.

    Eddie,

    Anywhere north or south from 4th street to 14th st. on Ocean Dr. along Lumas Park. And for a reallllllllllllllll treat stay at the Tides Hotel. If you surf google you can find a lot on line and you won't believe the Tides or the price.

    Re: Art Deco Hotels

    I went in to South Beach today. As soon as I parked, and started walking, it started pouring. I put the camera back in the van and walked around to scout a bit. Lots of possibilities but, the forecast isn't good. There might be a window on Wednesday. I did, however, walk by the Miami Ink tattoo parlor. I may just have to get one.
