Sample text

That’s to say, I chose to use the kind of intense and unusual lighting that would show the band’s members in a striking and campy manner. Along with using high-impact lighting, I also asked the band’s members to bring a collection of different clothes to the shoot. From this wardrobe, I chose tones and patterns that would add to the hyper—“over the top” look I was after. Finally, I added a guitar as a prop to help tie the picture together. Because of the lighting I wanted to use, and because I was not sure that all three band members would be available at the same time, I decided to shoot each separately.

I used two small, electronically linked, portable flashes and the ambient light present from the sky and from the parking lot’s lights for this shoot.
