Drink and Click Portrait: Demi

Demi, Drink and Click Portrait - Austin, Texas

Demi, Drink and Click Portrait – Austin, Texas

We moved from the dark second floor of the Shiner Saloon, in downtown Austin, to the 3rd floor outside deck. The lighting was better. I met Demi for the first time and made portraits with a few other Drink and Click participants.

This portrait is tighter than my usual ones — the framing selection is determined by the confluence of factors. Lighting is one. As well as the availability of space around the model. What is unseen — behind the scenes — is the jockeying of photographers to create the photo. Sometimes, I get to interact with the subject one on one. But not often.

When working among multiple photographs, camera speed is a factor. And, this is where the GFX 50R is at a disadvantage. It’s harder to capture that perfect expression. Or I might miss focus a bit more, resulting in a lower hit rate. The dynamics of group portrait taking are markedly different from a calmer personal interaction.
