It’s been a few months since I featured portraits from Drink and Clicks, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy making new ones. I’ve gone to a number of these get togethers throughout February and March. I like to mix things up on this blog, showing my travels and photographic observations, so I don’t want to heavily load up on portraits. But, it’s a different story on Instagram.
More than a year ago, I committed to upping my content on Instagram, but despite my plans and pronouncements, I let my account languish, until recently. At these Drink and Click events, I realized that Instagram is now the perfect calling card. A place to exchange contacts and photos. For models, it’s a perfect place to see the style of a particular photographer. Most everyone at Drink and Click now uses it.
Since the beginning of the year, I’m better at populating my feed. Only occasionally posting something else, to break up the solid block of portraits. My style? Not surprisingly, I’ve turned increasingly to black and white portraits, shot almost exclusively with the Olympus PEN-F and Panasonic 25mm f1.4 lens.
I’ll certainly post more of these portraits on this blog, from time to time. Though I still don’t consider myself a portrait photographer, per say, I’m shooting a lot more people. At a minimum, the monochrome portraits will add to my photographic variety. With nearly eight years of blog history, it’s interesting to see how my photography continues to evolve.
Here’s my Instagram feed, if you’re interested.
