From cars to portraits, a distinct change in series, as you can see. We are back at Drink and Click again, this time from early February this year. Unlike my other Drink and Click portraits, I made these with the Fujifilm GFX 50R and the GF63mm f2.8 lens. The first time I brought this gear to this event.
However, my style remains the same. I’ve built a reputation in the Austin Drink and Click community for my black and white portraits. And, even though I’m using a very different camera, I’m applying similar principles. I made the photos in color but converted them to monochrome in post using Capture One.
Similar to shooting with the Fuji X-T10, since I also lack image stabilization on the GFX 50R, I need a good light source. There was a dedicated lighting setup, which I positioned to get out-of-focus balls of light in the background. I made a portrait of Dominique about two years ago when I played with the Panasonic Leica 42.5mm f1.2 lens. She’s a photographer, but also happy to be in front of the camera.
