I think today after work, I'm going to sit down and consume beer until I get just the wee-slightest buzz going. Then head out and shoot while I walk the buzz off.
Life has taught me that a touch of alcohol is a great drug to help deal with social shyness. So certainly I should be able use those medicinal effects to not hold back on some shots that I might nomally skip past right?I figure the worst that can happen is I throw away a roll of blurry images, or get stabbed, or fall into the lake.
Seems like a solid plan. I'll report back later, barring a worst case scenario.
Experiment Results Inconclusive. I thought I consumed enough to process into a good buzz, but it barely got there and was gone in about 15 minutes. Next time I don't get an appetizer, and go to Brewhouse so I can have something with a kick to it.
It's probably better to do it in a group, cause lord knows one person walking around taking pictures, drunk, chatting people up, might be considered creepy... while a GROUP of them... Definitely more acceptable.
We could hit a 'happy hour' (i.e. 5ish) on the 30th before the DPG meeting and get some shots in then. Followed obviously then by dinner and drinks at the Mill. I'm not ruling out something before then, but maybe putting it on the calendar would be a better plan. Thoughts?
