When I go to photograph an event or conference, I am always looking for something that I can “play” with later, maybe make some “art”. I was at an event during the DNC here in Charlotte last week and arrived earlier than normal because traffic was just a little more chaotic than usual. After walking around the conference site, watching live MSNBC, just people watching, I went back to the event site to await the beginning of the festivities. As they were still setting up, I noticed these glasses all at attention awaiting pouring of wine and conversation.
For the technical folks, I was using my 17-40 at 640asa on aperature priority. This was at f4@1/30. I put it through Lightroom with a great b&w holga filter.
