I know, it’s only Thursday. But I found myself thinking about that Friday after-work beer today. Never can tell whence inspiration shall strike. Today it came from the mini fridge, and the Devil’s Backbone Vienna Lagers I found there. Further inspiration was found later at Original Gravity, where Tony hooked me up with some grains and hops (and advice on how to not sour my own brews).

A shot like this builds upon itself, with variations occurring along the process. It generally culminates in a single shot that is the “hero,” but sometimes that happens sooner, and the ensuing variations don’t bring anything to the creative table. That’s what happened today- I’ll always try variations of composition, elements, angle, exposure, etc., but must keep clarity of mind when it comes to choosing the “hero.”
