Pancakes & Booze Art Show at Gallery 1526

Last night I checked out The Pancakes & Booze Art Show at Gallery 1526 in Atlanta. There was a lot of great art work on display, live music, free pancakes, and people were allowed to bring their own beer to enjoy during the event. I brought my camera along to get some shots documenting the event for my photo blog.

I chose to forgo on-camera flash for this one in order to present the art work through my photos in it's actual lighting arrangement since this is usually taken into consideration when hanging the work. By shooting without flash I also achieved a higher level of contrast to the images with some strategic motion blur which I believed would better capture the mood and actual feel of the evening.
