Artist Portrait: Marty and Shawn

Marty and Shawn, EAST 2019 – Austin, Texas

I went to the East Austin Studio Tour again this year, my second year in the row. I was back making artist portraits, among other things. I did something different this year, but I’ll talk about that in an upcoming post.

For today, I feature Marty and Shawn, both of whom I met last year. I made separate portraits of them last year, but combined together this time since they share the same studio. It was like a mini-reunion, and I had fun hanging around them, even indulging in some wine.

I used the Olympus PEN-F with a 50mm equivalent last year but opted for the Fuji with a zoom lens for this year’s portraits. The wider perspective creates an entirely different feel. I’ve also turned more colorful, eschewing the monochrome look.
