I’m starting new series that I shot at a Precision Camera Event in March — shortly after SXSW. As you know, I primarily shoot urban landscapes, travel, and street photography. I dabble in portraiture but typically just at Drink and Clicks. Expanding my portraiture horizons, I signed up for something different.
In the Texas Hill Country, about an hour west of Austin, the Buggy Barn Museum in Blanco played host to this photo experience. Precision Camera organized this paid event, bringing models in period costumes to a Hollywood-like old west set. Daylight shooting, the outfits, and the background created something considerably different from Drink and Click, which usually happen at night.
We have Kayla here by the doorway of the old white church, located dead center in this fictitious town — you’ll see more of the architecture in future postings. Combining portraits with architectural elements made it especially enjoyable, allowing me to frame precisely. Unlike my usual black and white at Drink and Click, I opted for full color, which I’ll use for the entire series.
