The nice thing about having a drummer(Brundun with Goatsilk) who lives in your town is calling him up when you have a crazy idea. Had this idea in my head for awhile now but took awhile to get it worked out with our schedules and the weather in the evenings. Getting pretty cold in the evenings so this was a fast shoot so he didn't freeze too much. My mother and father were my two assistants on this shoot and I do have to say my mom couldn't stop laughing while she was spraying the water. She has known Brandun since we were little kids. :)
Still a few things I learned and will try differently in the future. I have another drummer lined up for this one but it may have to wait until next Spring/Summer when the temps are warmer again.
Had another set of images from a concert make it into The Pit Magazine. This time it was for Pueblo, Colorado band Myth of Creation. Check out the link!
First time being contributing to an online magazine! Check out my review and gallery of the Wednesday 13 show at Sunshine Studios in Colorado Springs, CO on 9/14/2016 in The Pit Magazine.
This year I decided to really work on doing more creative shoots where I have total freedom. Up next was a shoot with Michael Stahl(Tomb Throne) that has been in the planning phase since about February. Worked on making a set this time including making a tree forest, digging a pit for water and I used about 4 bags of ashes for the main floor area. Had the body painter Sara Crow come down from Denver to give the shoot a little something extra. Shoot went amazing and I am very pleased with the images. This was a 3 light set-up which I had planned to make 4 lights but my brand new light stand decided to break so had to give up on one light.
Seems like this summer I am all about shoots having to do with water. Still a few more up my sleeve to work on just have to hurry and get them done before the Colorado cold takes over.
