!!!LIGHTS OUT DANCING!!!
It took a whole crap ton of time and collaboration between the band and myself to come up with a creative concept and the time paid off. We started off with roughly 6 ideas and kept mixing and matching them all until we came up with this. Mike and I then spent a day out checking out and looking for locations to photograph and oddly enough we ended up doing this shoot right in the front yard of Scott's parents house.
I used 3 lights.
1- Speed-light to the far left
1-Alien B 800 to far right
1-Alien B 1600 with white reflective umbrella-to camera rear and from above at a 15 degree angle to my subjects left.
We began this shoot a little earlier in the day so that by the time we were finishing the individual images it wouldn't be a black sky. So in order to make the skies almost look like it was the same time of day I did some tweaking in photo-shop so they would have consistency.
