I was pleased to meet Danielle again, who I last saw nearly three years — pre-pandemic. Since then, she’s experienced a few happy life events — getting married, buying a house, and having a child.
Danielle was there primarily to socialize and not to model. However, I asked for a quick photography session for old times’ sake. We went inside the restaurant, where a mix of lights created a modest glow. Best of all, I got to make portraits without any other photographers. It was a short but productive shoot.
I’ve also featured Danielle several times on the blog, including these two black and whites from three and five years ago. The one from 2020 was with the X-T10, just as I moved back to Fuji. The 2018 portrait was with the Olympus PEN-F.
Today’s portrait is with the Fujifilm GFX 50S II. It’s softer in appearance since I had no dedicated lights — choosing to create an available light environmental portrait inside the restaurant. What hasn’t changed is the 50mm equivalent lenses on all three versions and the black and white processing.
