"I [HEART] Vodka" by Wes Aldridge
This shot was taken at Sam's Place on 21st Avenue in Nashville. It is a cosmopolitan, of course. Yummy Stoli vodka and cranberrry juice, with a lime. Gotta love that. It is so fu-fu, and you know I don't drink it. But in mixed company, you are bound to have one floating around. Thank God it makes for good photographs.
This glass was handheld up close to the light over the table to let the color of the drink shine through. In the background, to the far left, there is a traffic light with all three (green, yellow, red) lights lit up. To the right of it, a Tennessee Titans logo shines brightly.
Anyway, this was with the trusty ol' crappy 50mm f/1.8 lens. You know, bars are very dark, so be amazed at these settings. ISO 100 with a shutter speed of 1/60th of a second. Pretty sweet, huh? No pixelation or distortion at all. Gotta love that. Plus the person that was holding it had a lot of vodka, bless her heart. Well, enjoy.
