    I am going to Vegas. I love shooting neon signs. Here is my thought, in order to get bright colors, sharp images, and not over expose I am thinking shoot with ISO 100, wide open with a fast shutter speed. I am still learning. Does my method make sense? Any suggestions for film for this? Any suggestions on filters for this?

    Most likely, you are not going to be able to get both the signs, and the surrounding items. It will be one of the other generally depending on how dark it is. If its during twighlight, you might be able to get that light range.

    planning on shooting late at night to limit the natural light. Obviously there will ambiant light from other sources but that is something that comes with the teritory.
