I recently took a quick 36-hour trip to San Marcos, a little city just north of San Diego, CA. My fiancé booked a hotel for us, and we went on a little Brewery-Hopping spree. Lost Abbey and Stone Brewery were where we visited. I had my trusty M9 and Lux 50 with me (as usual). When we got there, I realized that both places were very dimly lit inside. Never-the-less, I was dedicated to getting some snaps and capturing our trip. Going to breweries is always a great experience because you know that the majority of the people who go there are beer connoisseurs. You can essentially engage in a long stimulating conversation with a complete stranger and get to know them through “beer-talk”. Everyone is very down-to-earth and welcoming. I started shooting at ISO 200, and realized that I had to bump up to 400 for most of these shots. In my opinion, ISO 400 on the M9 is completely usable without really showing any grain. Anyway, I hope you find these interesting enough to make it to the daily inspiration.
