Diabolical Imperium - Promoshooting - Band - Strobist - Wuppertal

After the work I did for Deathfist Jan called me up to give him a Hand with his other Project Diabolical Imperium. Being a Black/Death Metal Band and having a whole different image to project I was looking forward to the challenge.


Shooting Notes

The Band was looking for two different looks for the Album Art. First we started with a clean black background and portraits of the Band and individual members. Shooting in an improvised backyard studio, made it quite easy to pull the look of. Not having to work against the sun make my life a lot easier. Considering the hard natur of the music, the idea was to make the light hard as well. Because I was working with a single front light and a rim light on both sides, I was able to switch out the Bandmembers one by one after the ratios were dialed in and got through the first set of images pretty fast. A little tweeking later, the setup was chanced easily for making the groupshots.
After that we went around the corner to get some outside shots. Just at the side of the road was a little dirt mount and a powerstation, that made a nice background. Working with just one light and the sun, this set of Images was done as quickly as the first set.
