Preparing for Graduation

Graduation is in less than a month and so of course I've needed to shoot for that. Band promo pics were my goal this quarter and I had two shoots this week - Downfall ( and Ozo Remedy ( I'll be photographing Tripshod, New Shores Burn, and Dethlehem within the next couple of weeks. Bands are a little more difficult to schedule than models because of the number of people. It's definitely worth it though - these shoots were very different and very fun.

Downfall's shoot was at this burned out shell of a hut in the back woods of Ambridge. I used almost entirely natural light, though supplemented with flash occasionally when were funky shadows. Ozo Remedy's was more formal and we shot in a video studio one of the band members works at. It made me really want a studio of my own, so if I don't get a job right out of school, I think there's a very good chance that the old storefront will be rennovated.

I also recently redesigned my webpage - Today I'm going to order some promo pieces for graduation - buttons! They're going to be awesome, I can't wait!
