Photo Friday Bonus: Whiskey

I went out to see the fight and have a few drinks Saturday night, and I made a point to bring my camera along.

These photos are exactly why I need to have my camera with me at all times. I had expected to shoot photos of my friends or people around the bar, but instead I turned my lens on my drinks.

These are both Jameson Irish Whiskey, the above a cocktail with soda and below just whiskey & rocks.

It occurs to me, I have Jameson here at home but no soda water. I’ll have to rectify that.

I used the kit lens on these. No flash. Both were positioned below recessed spot lamps. My only beef with the second photo is I had to break the rim of the left side of the glass with the crop because the framing broke the rim on the right side of the photo. I hadn’t expected to use this one, it was a light test and shot without using the viewfinder. On screen, it became my favorite.

Now I’m thirsty.
