Why hello there, good people of the Internet!
You know, it's been a while since I've done one of these things. You would usually see my live outgoings of the rock show ... and the occasional food picture. I want it all, at times! ;) Anyway, let's begin with the reason this blog post is live in the first place.
It was a couple of days after my 32nd birthday that I received a message for a photo opportunity with a little known loud rock band [it's been a long while since I had a band shoot]. I instantly jumped at the moment that the message popped up, whilst being half awake! Yeah, that tends to happen and I end up going, "shoot, panic!" So, I set out to find a local studio that had the looks I had in mind when listening to their refreshing sounds. Then, Five Four Studios sealed the deal for me to place the ace trio Joe Lomax [vocals and guitars], Ryan Greenhalgh [bass & backing vocals] and Sam Tempest [percussion] into two scenarios.
The settings was a single Elinchrom Quadra A light with the 100cm Octabox for a clean, flattering look. Now, the light was used continuously as my EL Skyport Classic Transmitter somehow broke from the hotshoe of my Nikon D750. But, this ended creating photos of a naturally warm atmosphere in one room and a harshly contrast look in the corridor. A win win!
So, without further ado, may I present to you, ladies and gentlemen, Peur!
