Late last year, before the snow started to fly, I had the opportunity to assist fellow photographer Mike Giovinazzo creating some imagery for local boys Static Revolt. It was a cold and windy evening, but the guys were troopers in travelling around to a few locations to get a variety of photos. We set out to give them a bunch of different looks with a few locations and wardrobe changes. It was a fun night, that even gave me a chance to experiment a little.
They are getting ready to release a new disc, just in time for summer. Check them out!
Back in December I was contacted by Become the Sun. They were in need of a portrait for their upcoming CD release. After trying a few different settings, this one was the one that we were all happiest with.
This has been under wraps for a while now. I am so happy that I am finally able to share it on my blog. This is the first portrait that I have had used inside a CD package. I had agreed not to post it until after their CD Release Party.
They are a good group of guys and I look forward to working together again to create some more imagery for them. Check out their music on myspace!
Here are a few more photographs from Nathan’s session this weekend. He’s quite the happy little guy. It doesn’t take much to get him smiling.
This weekend I found my solid floor surface for my white seamless. That means it is no longer just a background. I can now use it as the full seamless it was meant to be. Check back for more photographs from Nathan’s first session on the white seamless later this week.
This week I started working with my white seamless. I had to figure out a setup in my basement that would work for me, easy to setup and easy to tear down. At this point I’m only using it as a background. The basement is carpeted, so having people stand on the white seamless would cause creasing. I’d go through it faster and it wouldn’t look good in photographs. I need to get some sort of hard surface to put underneath to keep everything crisp. But as they say, work with what you have. So here are a few shots of my son Liam having fun in front of the camera, as I start to work out my setup, figure out distances, light placement, etc.
Another self portrait while experimenting with my flashes. This was a 3 light setup. Once you get over the initial fear of flashes, experimenting becomes fun.
A little fun with Tupper and some lights. Well…….fun for me. He wasn’t really interested tonight, so we kept it short.
