Drink and Click Portrait: Cindy

Cindy, Drink and Click Portrait – Austin, Texas

For the final picture from this Drink and Click series, I have Cindy. She is also the last portrait I took that night in early November. I’ve been to half a dozen Drink and Click events this year. Perhaps I’ll feature more pictures in the future.

It was late, around 11 pm, staying longer than usual. We went back inside the restaurant for ambient light shooting. I boosted the ISO to 3200 with a slow shutter speed of 1/30 a second, even with an f2.8 lens.

In addition to the Fujifilm GFX 50S II, I bought another Fuji camera, the Instax Mini Evo. It’s a hybrid digital and analog camera that spits out instant prints. I also brought it to the Dia de los Muertos parade. Taking snapshots of all the models, I gave them a print of their choice. Here, Cindy is modeling with her pick.

The Mini Evo was a hit at Drink and Click and the reason I bought the camera. It’s a fun device at social gatherings and a great way to share photography on the spot. The GFX will blow the Evo away for image quality, but the instant prints have a character and tangibility people love.
