Drink and Click Portrait: Danielle

Danielle, Drink and Click Portrait – Austin, Texas

It’s been a while since I’ve showcased my Drink and Click portraits. I’m starting a series today with a bunch I shot over the last half-year. Today’s is an older one, back from December 2017. It was around this time when I settled on this particular look — using a high contrast black and white, with a film-ish grain, at a 50mm equivalent focal length.

I shot Danielle with the Olympus PEN-F with the Panasonic Leica 25mm f1.4 lens. This one is an in-camera JPEG, totally unprocessed. I used the “Mono Profile 2” style built into the camera. In fact, it was this black and white setting on the PEN-F that got me making these kinds of portraits. Later, I’ve modified RAW files to get a similar look with additional processing latitude. These in-camera JPEGs really influenced my style.

As I dig back into my memory, I remember making this picture on the roof patio at the Shiner Saloon in downtown Austin. It was December 21st and already in the holiday mood. Time just moves awfully fast these days. I can’t believe that it’s 6 months since I created this portrait.
