I’ve done a few more bar and restaurant photos for the Stranger recently. The Steelhead Diner:
the Double Header (according to the review, it’s the oldest gay bar in the country!):
and Fadó Irish Pub:
It’s fun having assignments like this–I love checking out new places and meeting the people who work there. And it’s also interesting to compare the original photo I take with the crop that runs in the paper. For example, compare the original Fadó image above with the picture as it ran in the paper:
And compare that with the image that ran online here:
The image space for article pages online is pretty tiny and the dimensions are tall and narrow. Each version of the picture has a very different feeling to it; it’s amazing how much a new crop can change an image.
