Here’s one last ring light portrait in this series. Almost all of the models at Drink and Clicks are women. Todd is one of the few male models who regularly come to the events.
I first met Todd several years ago at Precision Camera University as part of the crew of models. Since then we’ve bumped into each other from time to time. He’s had really complimentary things to say about my black and white portraits but you can say I’m currently in my ring light experimental phase. I don’t own a ring light. I just use one that Juan, the originator of Drink and Click, sets up at the event.
Over the years, I’ve gotten famous at the Austin Drink and Clicks for my black and white portraits. In fact, I’ve noticed more people posting similar monochromes. I have no idea if I was the influence, but that tells me that I need to do something different. I’m not giving up on my black and white portraits; rest assured it’s a style I like. But, it’s always good to shake things up with something different.
