Week 47, Day 325, March 20, 2010, Fear

We headed to the original Dinosaur Bar-B-Que for dinner this evening with the family.  I just found out that the restaurant was voted the best place to get BBQ in the Good Morning America Weekend online poll.

While inside the dark restaurant I used my 50 mm lens.  Because of the closeness of the people sitting around the table, the photos were extreme close ups.

I like this photo because the subject has a look of fear. (Perhaps this was after he found out that the wait time was 1 1/2 hours.)

Lessons Learned:
  • Extreme close ups of faces can yield interesting photos.  I took several of the people around the table.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/250 sec, Aperture f/1.8, ISO 3200, Focal Length 50 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 82mm, Lens Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, handheld.

last 2 times we went to Dino we were early and got the LAST table each time! My strategy: go earlier than early!

1 1/2 hours...Hmmm how many tables? James every area has the best cue. They are all different. Steve great shot.

I have never been to Dinosaur when the wait was less than an hour. I think I am going to start going with Gary.

Your subject looks petrified. Is he heading back north today? If so, tell him and Kari I am sad I missed seeing them this trip.

Heh. More likely it's the dinosaurs looming over him ;)
