Imaad painting at 98 Acres.
Of one person really, but there’s a shot with me. No homo. Above is Imaad painting in the room at 98 Acres, the resort we were reviewing. I am hanging somewhat precariously off the side of the balcony. The focus with reflections is wonky and this took a couple tries.
Imaad at Dream Cafe.
Above is a shot at Dream Cafe, Ella. I’ve always been interested in natural layers – reflections, transparent surfaces, liquids. Ordinary things that make the everyday trippy. Here the transparent table thing divides the frame into thirds and you get odd little thought bubbles above Imaad’s head.
Again, this took a few tries to get the focus right. The autofocus on the X100 is weird and it lacks face detection. The manual focus is well nigh unusable. Like a woman really. Sometimes you just have to hold it right.
Long exposure on the balcony.
En fin, this is a long exposure of me and Imaad at the dead of night. We’re trying to keep still. I think this was 10 seconds.
So, those are some portraits from the Hill Country, mainly Ella and the 98 Acres Resort. More like self-portraits really. I thought they caught some surreal moments in the day-to-day.
