EAST 2019 happened in November, and I already posted a few artist portraits last December. Today, I’m featuring a few art patrons that I met at the East Austin Studio Tour. I explored the Canopy, ground zero for EAST, but I most frequently hung out at Shawn and Marty’s studio space. I met both artists in 2018 and have become friends.
As I recall, this was the end of the first day of EAST, and we were all in a festive mood. I had my Fujifilm Instax printer with me, and I printed portraits on the spot. Using the Fuji X-T10, I can send images directly to the printer, which is a great way to share the gift of photography.
This was also my first real outing with the Fujifilm 18-55mm f2.8-5.6, which I bought from Kirk Tuck. I often like shooting portraits with my 50mm equivalent prime. But, I opted for the flexibility of this well-regarded kit lens instead. It didn’t disappoint.
