Nitro Milk Stout

Nitro Milk Stout 4

I wanted a beer but also had an itch to uses my camera. Why not combine the two needs? I haven’t picked up my camera in a while. I’ve reached that stage where I’m not inspired. I want something new to try. I have, by no means, do it all. In fact, I’ve barely scratched the surface of the body of knowledge and expression of photography. I’m just feeling some ennui. Thank goodness, the Scott Kelby World Wide Photo Walk is coming up. I need to get outside with my tribe.

I have a theory that my ennui (am I using that word correctly) is caused by a lack of restful sleep. I’ve been going to bed late. I feel like I’m watching too much crap television. I could be reading or learning a new skill. I want to go to bed earlier tonight. I think by 10 PM.

About the beer. The Nitro is a Milk Stout. It’s not sweet but not bitter either. It’s smooth. Ok. I have no idea how to describe it but it’s delicious.

At first I tried shooting with my Nikon SB600 speed light and a Gary Fong Lightsphere. I didn’t like the results. The images seemed flat. I wanted something like [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”]the photos I saw on Gizmodo. I sat and stared at the iMac’s screen glow when I noticed the cheap desk lamp I bought for a DIY light box. I put the lamp on the living room floor, put the glass of beer on the ottoman, and turned off the room lights. I like what I saw.
