I just finished a band promo shoot this evening. It's a band that I've shot twice before, but they keep getting new bassists. They haven't picked out the ones they want edited yet, but I picked a couple out that looked all right just to see how they turned out. I the first one, it's the first time I've up-lit anyone before. I basically took the strobe off its tripod and laid it on the ground. I thought it would make them look too creepy, but I like the way it turned out. If they like this one, I may take the tree branches out. 1. I love old abandoned houses. This one was particularly nasty. This was pretty much the only room we could even get into. We swore we kept hearing the sound of a swarm of bees somewhere nearby. We were constantly on the lookout for rats and snakes. But we persevered with no incidents. 2.
