As of late I’ve tried to make my way into more and more new venues to get a sense for what’s going on every day of the week. As it turns out, on a Tuesday, things are pretty quiet but there was at least an open mic night at Liberty Street on Mass Ave. That said, it was a REALLY low key event. Just one guy who worked at the bar:
… and one gentleman that I’ve shot a few times before…
I have to say that shooting one-on-one this way was pretty awkward. My subject was very tolerant of my attempts to shoot at odd and interesting angles but I can’t imagine he was any more comfortable than I was.
The awkwardness and the very poor lighting made this night one of those in which I look back and say to myself that at least I got out and shot SOMETHING. Definitely not my most inspired work but it all counts towards my 10,000 hours towards competence in this realm. The locale did have some nice random baubles, however.
The painfully low light doesn’t do photographers any favors, however.
