This Canon is getting close to retirement and the decision on the next camera to replace it hasn’t been the easiest to make, switching when you have built up a few lenses and you know the camera in and out is hard especially when you aren’t someone who has money to burn, but when need to upgrade to keep up with the times, you need to make sure what you get is going to be able to cover all aspects of what you doing and I’m one of the people who believe gear doesn’t matter and this is truer then anything, but the clients you might deal with don’t believe it and it’s cheaper in the long run to get what will eventually make you the most on a return for your investment. With all the being said I’m partial to shooting some video every now and then and the Sony A7R III is looking pretty good right now.
I wanted to take a fancy shot for the Liver Bashers social media that was a bit different from the shots we normally post on our Instagram. So I grab a glass from a set Lorenzo Mitil gave me and stacked up some scotch tape to prop up the glass and with a wee bit of Photoshop magic, some color correction in Lightroom Mobile and Bobs your Uncle.
There are beers you drink warm and then there are beers that are better ice cold and we mean so cold that a layer of frost builds up on the bottle when it hits the open air of a hot summer day. We found the fine folks from Bomber Jackets on Instagram a while back and sometimes being fans of the cold beer persuasion these guys peak our interest with the artwork on their koozies that come in a variety for bottles and cans. See the full article on Liver Bashers.
I have a need to take a picture of every beer I drink and also to get creative on how it is shot because of the need to try and hopefully different from the thousands and thousands of other people taking shots of their beers. You can see all of them over on The Liver Bashers.
I picked up a four pack of Winter Landscape by Industrial Arts Brewing and with the first sip I had a memory of a beer I used to drink all the time from Xingu. The first sip always tasted like grape soda.
I was joining a couple friends for a pint in Jersey City when it started pouring out and I saw this man walking I assume at the end of his work day ready to start his weekend and I just had to take the shot.
