The other liquid gold - Grey Goose taste by appointment

Taste, like most things is completely subjective. It's like how people wonder if the colour they see the same as the colour their friends see. This, of course, is the same with taste.  Taste can be taught well, realised and broken down.  Joe McCanta, the Grey Goose ambassador to explains to a table at Gowings Bar and Grill of around 20 that there are 6 types of taste,  sweetness, sourness, bitterness, Savouriness (Umami) and astringency.  From this knowledge Joe masterfully creates the most delicious cocktails... so I've been told - no drinking on the job.

Shooting in the Gowings Bar and Grill's private dinning is a challenge.  With low lighting, dark features and a black roof you can't really use bounce flash to get some nice shadows and contrast. Even with the low lighting capabilities of the Nikon D4s the light wasn't even all worked nicely in some shots.  To save the situation I setup 2 remote speed lights in either end of the room to give some nice contrast without flashing right in the media's faces.
