PEOPLE 369 – DRINKING LAGER (MONO)

 

 


Having lunch with an old and very valued friend; feeling good and drinking lager, as it happens.  And I asked her to take some shots of me with the TG-5.  Not at all an ideal camera for this, far too much of the background in focus and light conditions tricky but, anyway, here I am, sucking down the old Electric Sauce and feeling the benefits thereof.

.

.
Critique: the TG-5 not doing too badly at 3200 ISO.  However, as my old friend was driven to admit, the whole experience left her shaken … but not stirred …   And also, you know, I’m just not sure she’s caught my best side …
.
Technique: take one old and very valued friend, several glasses of lager and one TG-5 at 40mm (equiv), and shake well to mix in all the goodness and downright friendliness; 3200 ISO; Lightroom, using the Camera Vivid film simulation; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Neutral preset and adding a light Coffee tone; lunching, drinking and laughing in a pub in south Bristol; 14 Mar 2019.

    • Oh, come now, nothing like a little liquid lubrication for getting the imagination going >>> tho as Alexander The Great put it, he only ever trusted decisions that looked as good when he was sober as they did when he was drunk! 🙂

  3. Great shots and how nice to see the man who is usually the other side of the camera! It is a rare thing that I’m the subject of any photographs…! Are those pictures of Clifton suspension bridge in the background?
    Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.
    Best wishes
    Mr C 🙂
