Rick Lee has a lot of photo advice.
With a digital camera, one really should take a lot of shots of the same thing, trying different angles. When Chris and I were at Harvest last week, we shot over 300 pictures of each other during the meal, just trying to get good shots and thinking up new angles, composing different backgrounds. You can see the ones I saved in this Flickr photoset.
When we were out at Crave with the other day, I took a hundred shots of Nina -- trying to get a good portrait, but also looking for new compositions, like this one making the Cosmopolitans monumental.
Another portrait with a monumental drink -- and distortion from the glass that I love but that Chris might object to (don't, please, Chris!):
Hey, give me that.
