Beyond the photographers and talks at the Four X Five Photo Fest, I liked the venue. The industrial / artistic space is called East Crossing, a converted train depot in an old community within the orbit of San Antonio. There was a food truck outside and craft beer inside. It’s a far cry from convention centers and chain hotel conference rooms. The venue had a small-scale authenticity often lacking from homogenized corporate facilities.
Stephanie worked at the bar, serving craft beer and soft drinks. I struck up a conversation after taking a candid of her, earlier, similar to yesterday’s post about Are you a portrait or candid person?
Too bad it wasn’t darker. Catching the phone’s glow — lighting up Stephanie’s face — would make the image so much better. But, unlike those staged portraits with phones, this one is a true candid.
