For my last photo of this series, Vivian is back again, joined by Rashawna. We are still at the Spirit of Texas Distillery in Pflugerville, from a Drink and Click back in March.
I’ve talked before about the sub-genre of my black and white portraits that feature a smartphone. It’s a theme I continue to revisit. In today’s photo, I especially love their expressions — a look of surprise that I haven’t captured before.
As with many of my Drink and Click portraits, I shoot them in fairly dark places. In fact, the smartphone photos work better when it’s darker. The ambient light needs to be low enough that you see the effect of the phone’s LCD backlighting. As a bonus, the LCD lights the faces and adds catch lights in the eyes.
