Latest news for p>
One of my carpool buddies, , bumped into this here photo blog I believe as a result of my post. He has a new band called () that plays Latin alternative music. He asked if I would come to one of their practice sessions to p> get some documentary type shots for their website. I figured I could use the experience so I said yes.
Saturday I went up to their studio to see what I could do. In talking to David before hand he said it was a small room with dim lighting. So just I'm case I brought my studio lights. I was glad I did as they helped immensely. It was still quite difficult as the band was scattered around the room all facing eachother. Naturally any place I put the lights would be close to some and far away from others. This made the lighting quite difficult. P> i basically had to adjust the lights depending on who i was shooting.
More experienced photogs may have been able to do it all with one setting, but I guess I'm not that photog quite yet. Luckily I had picked up some JrX remote triggers which allowed me to adjust the strobes on the fly. This made it extremely easy to [p>] adjust the power of my two lights as I went around the room and framed different situations.
After the studio we moved out to an auditorium of sorts to do some casual shots on a couch that they had. They had a great wood floor that added a lot to the shots.
Finally we went out to beside their building to get some outside shots. Again, wanting it kind of casual.
All in all I enjoyed the challenge. Hopefully the band gets some stuff out of it that they like. David is a designer himself p>, so he will be editing the photos with his own chosen style. I edited these for my own benefit to see what I could do with them.
Any feedback is welcome as I am always wanting to improve.
