Sometimes I get asked to take portraits and band/musician photos. I really enjoy the departure from more “journalistic” shoots because I get to tell people what to do, adjust the scene, and play around with Photoshop more. And most of the time, the only stipulation that bands and musicians have is “make me/us look cool,” so that leaves the door open for a lot of creativity.
I did a shoot a while ago with Joe Romeo, a musician in Carrboro, NC. I ended up giving him a ton of photos that came out pretty nicely and it was a really fun, albeit really long, shoot. Here are a couple of selects that I liked a lot:
