Some might say drinking hard liquor straight puts hair on your chest. Well, that may be the case, but it's not going to make the trip down your throat and into your stomach very enjoyable.

Photographer Chris Swainston is working on a series of 100 photographs featuring people taking shots. He wants to capture the emotion and pain that people extrude when doing a shot of straight, hard liquor. There's no chaser here, folks, just one shot and one photo.

I feel bad for some of the people in Chris Swainston's photo series. I'm sure everyone loves a free drink, but not everyone loves straight shots. Swainston captures every cringe and contortion of the face. He has even captured a mid-vomit picture, which is a little gross but still funny to see.
