Photographer's Note

Since many clubs don't allow flash photography, we've been working on ambient light photos with a 1.8 fixed aperture lens and 1600 ISO. The 1600 ISO gives a lot of noise of course so I selectively decreased noise in areas of the photo, then I uses an overlay layer of the untouched photo to smoothe out the edges. Then I erased areas where I wanted more light and less noise. I'll post the untouched original in the WS.

This club does allow flash photography but I've grown to prefer the ambient lighting. I'll also post a flash photo. Let me know which of the three you like best.

I'll dedicate the photo to Xuaxo since the club was La Portugalia and this was Francisco's introduction to Ocean Beach.
