Chrystan at The Ginger Man - Austin, Texas

Chrystan at The Ginger Man – Austin, Texas

It’s the first cold night, tonight, of the coming winter. At least cold by Austin standards — in the high 30s with noticeable wind gusts. I was downtown for a sparsely attended Drink and Click, about a dozen people braved the cold.

Readers from the north may laugh, but when it was 60 – 70 degrees, just a few days ago, 30s does feel down right frosty in Central Texas. We gathered at the Ginger Man, a bar with an entire wall of beers on tap. Even though I’m not much of a beer drinker, I indulged in a couple of brown ales.

I’m still playing with and learning how to shoot the Olympus 75mm f1.8. A wonderful portrait lens, though longer than what I’m used to, focal length wise. It does great head and shoulder portraits and Chrystan, who served us with a smile, was nice enough to pose.

Shot with my Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II. As with many moody bars, it’s awfully dark and I used the Christmas lights for some desperately need illumination. Shot at 1/30 of a second, ISO 1250 at f2. Lucky the image stabilization works well.
