I had a couple of Bud Lights left over from the fourth of July, and I am not a fan of Bud Light and so I knew I wanted to use them for a photo. Monday I got back from class and there was only a little bit of light left, but it was still bright enough to do some faster shutter things and so I decided it was a good time to use the beer.
So, here is what comes out of a completely random, spur of the moment shoot involving old beer.
On Friday I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to assist a photographer (Andrew Kung) from the Lexington/Louisville area. We took pictures for Churchill Downs on their opening night of Downs After Dark. Downs After Dark happens on four Fridays during the summer. They have a theme every night (this Friday was Disco night) and people dress up and come to dance and party. They just had an extremely nice (and expensive) light system installed, so that they can do night racing, which is pretty cool.
It was a crazy experience. I learned lots and am so was able to help him out.
This picture was taken by me but belongs to Churchill Downs and is not to be used in any way. Thanks and enjoy!
Since I go to school in Kentucky the Derby is a HUGE deal. I went to Elliot’s Aunt’s house for the day to celebrate, and the mint juleps were plentiful, plus it is such a derby thing so I had to make that my picture for the day.
This was from Saturday night (it was after midnight, so I am counting it as Sunday’s picture). Me and Elliot were sitting down to watch a movie, and he decided to have some bourbon and coke. He poured the bourbon, and him being the excellent boyfriend that he is told me to get my camera and take some pictures, and then started to pour the coke in. I never would have thought to shoot this, thank goodness I have him around.
