Astronauts gone Astray were looking for Promoshots, which gave me the chance to try out some new things and interesting ideas.
The Band didn’t have a clear idea what they were looking for, so it was up to me, to come up with something interesting. So we started pretty late during the day to get the full sunset into the pictures and some strong colours. The Bands has quite a modern sound, so I wanted to give them some fancy choices.
Working against the sunset, made me use two Sunpak 120J into a single big umbrella to get enough light on the Band. Having the sun in the Background made a rimlight not necessary. When taking the single portraits of the members, I had to incorperate another light, because the sun was pretty low at that point to give some separation between the guys and the background.
After we were done, we drove to an empty parking lot for some more fun. With the sun almost completely down by now I could play a bit with lights and had a chance to try myself at the Bandname Astronauts gone Astray, having some clear ideas what I wanted to do with the images afterwards in photoshop.
