The Drink and Clicks this winter, seem to coincide with the blast of arctic air that makes it all the way down to Austin. And by arctic air, we mean the 30s, in Austin. Photographer Sarah, drinks a Hot Toddy to warm up, shot yesterday at the latest event.
We went to a new place, Prohibition Creamery, which combines a full bar with an ice cream parlor. Naturally, you can get a standard drink or scoops of ice cream, but you can also get ice cream infused with booze. I passed on the ice cream, but had a fun time shooting, nevertheless.
I had my new Olympus PEN-F with me with the Panasonic Leica 25mm f1.4 lens. A great combination for such a dim venue. I used the standard, built-in “mono profile 2” setting, which emulates grainy black and white films like Kodak’s Tri-X. A perfect image for my Deep Blacks collection.
Until this photo, my Deep Blacks images were all shot with the Pentax Q7 in Japan but the intent of the collection was always to move beyond a particular camera and location. The Pentax Q7 is a fun and tiny camera, but the Olympus PEN-F bests it in image quality and versatility.
