If you’ve followed along the last week or so, you know I’ve created and posted several black and white portraits, which I photographed during this year’s SXSW festival. I shot Becky and Coop with that intention. The actual JPEG exposure was not ideal and as I worked the RAW file, I discovered the color version was far more appealing.
What resulted kind of reminded me of a movie poster, which is apropos, because these guys are actually promoting an upcoming movie. I didn’t know that at the time. I just made a few quick exposures and I was on my way, taking in the rest of the SXSW transformed 6th Street.
I later discovered that the local Voodoo Doughnut was converted into the D-Hole for the Chips movie promotion, which I read about here. I didn’t partake in the odd drinks and doughnut combination but I’m happy that I made this portrait.
Incidentally, I’m using my new Capture One based software workflow for a while, continuing to make the switch from Apple’s Aperture. I’m getting great results processing my images with tools not available in Aperture. This is one of the resulting images. I’ll talk about post-production with Capture One, in an upcoming post.
