I remember the first time I went to The Jockey Pub at The Hilton. I was still fresh at photography & didn't have a clue what settings to use on my camera (Seems so long ago now that I think about it)
My mentor; a professional photographer and a long time friend of mine told me that when you're starting out, take as many photos as you can, some are bound to be good.
So I did, but for some reason I was drawn to the cocktails..., I know what you're thinking, but this is not the story of my alcohol fueled escapades (Let's save that for another day)
(But this guy would beg to differ)
I realized that I was taking awesome pics (By my standards at the time) when it came to the cocktails. So, like a good student I took as many as I could.
Here are my top picks, tell me what you think about it
After that I learnt three valuable lessons:
- The law of averages is essential for beginners, so take as many photos as possible.
- Don't listen to anyone who tells you real photographers only use manual settings.
- And maybe the most valuable lesson. Don't overdo it with the Mojitos.
