I’ve returned to photographs made with the Fujifilm GFX 50R, again. And, before I launch back into photos of downtown Austin, I wanted to showcase some portraits. Ever since the pandemic, I haven’t shot any new ones. Drink and Click was my primary source, and I haven’t been to once since January. That’s certainly one of the activities I miss the most.
These portraits are courtesy of Precision Camera. This was from back in February when they had a lighting vendor setup with Jennifer as the model. I opted not to use the flash trigger and made these in available light with the Fujifilm 63mm f2.8 lens. As I often do with my portraits, I’ve post-processed them in black and white.
This is not the first time I’ve met Jennifer. She was also at an Olympus event last year, I think, for the launch of the OM-D E-M1 Mark III — if I remember correctly. I enjoy working with her since she has confident and deliberate poses. That works perfectly with the GFX 50R, which is not a super-fast camera. I often find less experienced models move too frenetically for my taste.
