The IP(A) Project 29


Shot for the UTATA Iron Photographer 29.

The elements required for this shot:

1 - eyeglasses / sunglasses
2 - a bottle
3 - noise / grain

I can't take 100% of the credit for this shot. I had the concept in my head, but it was impossible for me to pose for the shot (hold the beer so it would appear in focus in the glasses), focus the camera, compose it, and trip the shutter. So I explained to the girlfriend what I had in mind and then she moved my head and the bottle to get the shot you see here. We had a lot of fun putting this one together!

The glasses are hers as well as I'm fortunate enough to have naturally good eyesight.

Tweaked the shot in CSE to get the contrasty look.

(BTW, the bottle of Fat Tire pictured here is one of the two still sitting in the fridge from this picture.)
