There’s a certain Hollywood-like illusion to these portraits. The support staff and other photographers vying for a similar picture are unseen beyond the frame. Of course, unlike a film, the setups are modest. Sometimes there are auxiliary lights or someone with a reflector. This event was popular with over 30 attendees. With only a handful of models, this usually means a bunch of photographers per model. However, the ratio is a lot more favorable than at Drink and Clicks.

I used the Fujifilm GFX 50S II to make all the portraits and my Fujifilm X100V as a B-roll camera — shooting behind the scenes. I thought you might find this interesting.

The attendees were well behaved, sharing access to the models. It’s relaxing compared to the sometimes competitive situations at Drink and Clicks. I wonder, however, if these were stressful for the uninitialized. Having a good command of your camera always helps. While there is some technical assistance, since these are not classes, there’s an expectation that photographers know what they are doing.
