My first band promo shoot!

stateside stereo

My first band promo shoot! This was actually a challenging assignment. They wanted it at night. They wanted streaming lights. I can do that. But I had to make sure the guys weren’t blurry. Or not too blurry anyway (a little ghosting is fun.) I had only one battery powered flash (I can’t afford mobile power for my studio lights yet). I got kicked off premises by metro police after finding the perfect backdrop. And did I mention that taking portraits makes me nervous (which is why I am still only practicing)? And in this case I had to shoot not just one person, but four! Odds were stacked against me every which way. But the band seems pleased enough with the results.
