I was commissioned to take photos for a contemporary R&B artist's album cover and some material for a press package. The musician also hired a graphic designer to add some flair to the final image. As always, working with a team means having to work around everyone's schedule, and as a result we were limited to shooting at high noon. I shot outdoors using available light in the shade, with a white reflector for some fill light. All were shot using a Canon 85mm f/1.8 lens (set to f/4), on a Canon 5D Classic. The finished album cover: Here are some of the other images from the shoot.
