Glass Menagerie

Raise a Glass

This was shot at the Welcome Reception of the National Association of Insurance Women regional conference in Sonoma, California. I was the event Photographer and captured the spirit of the conference from business meetings, group portraits and their celebrations.

I was drawn to this pyramid of wine glasses and used my 10-20mm lens to get up close. I like the Bokeh of the receding glasses – magical!

  2. Very nice. I’ve seen a lot of table setting shots at event portfolios. This is a little different.

  3. I tried this once – mine was lame. Yours on the other hand, is quite cool! Did you light this at all, or go with ambient?

  4. Hi
    Thanks for all the kind comments – greatly appreciated! @Jason, this was 100% ambient incandsecent and pretty dark in the Bar area. I had the camera resting on the Bar and held it down tight allowing quite a long exposure time.

    Regards, Erik
