I photographed the Rolling Stones last night in Chicago. I rarely get asked to go to concerts and the last group I captured was AC/DC back when Bush was still the president. At this rate Macklemore will have to pop tags for 30 years before I see him through my viewfinder.
Recording artist Megan’s The Heartbreak Remedy is now on itunes. I must say, its kind of fun seeing your image as the album artwork!
Doing this shoot for Megan, a singer originally from Indiana now residing in Chicago, was a welcome departure from my norm and required a lot of imaginative thought, knowing that what I was shooting would be combined later with graphics to form the final image.
For this shoot I tried something new. I decided to use one of my two new twin 1200-watt HMI movie lights as my main light and then I used two two-foot Kino Flo lights to strip either side of the subjects face. By using continuous lighting I was able to see the light in real time which was so much more fun than shooting with electronic flash and imagining what the light would look like when the strobes fired.
