Photographer's Note

This one goes out to our resident bar man, Luciano (lousat), for the obvious connection. :)

I go out to lunch once a month with one of my former bosses, to a sports bar/restaurant called Hooters. There’s a “not-so-subtle” double entendre with the name, but I’ll leave it up to your own interests to figure that one out. hehe Take a look at the link if you’d like to know more about the sports bar itself.

Since we meet there on a regular basis, we’ve come to know a few of the staff, one of them being the general manager. I pitched an idea to her that I was wanting to put together a short series of pictures based on P.O.V., and so I asked if it would be possible to step behind the bar to obtain that type of perspective. She gladly obliged, and so I gave it a shot.

The light conditions were tough to say the least, and without a tripod I had to greatly increase the ISO in order to even attempt a hand held shot. Technical details are lacking, but it was the idea of conveying the sense from behind the counter that I wanted to capture. Not the prettiest of pictures, but an avenue I really wanted to try out…so bear with me for a few while I make my way through this short set.

Time to raise a glass…cheers!

Thanks for stopping by.
