Here are a few frames from a recent shoot here in Kentucky that I did with DR Harrison for his upcoming debut album, Deafening Dreams. We discussed several ideas and stuck fairly tight to the original concept, but did stray maybe just a bit. The shot above is something of a "Behind the Scenes" type shot. We used my barn to take advantage of its height, the ability to shoot with a long lens to compress, and to be be able to get out of the wind that might have made this shot impossible. It's pretty much a simple lighting set-up using 2 Elinchrom Rangers with only small reflectors for a the harsh side lights, a Speedlight in a beauty dish for the main/fill light, and a small background light. I really liked the retro-looking Wescott background. The chair was rented from a local antique shop in West Liberty, KY, called Red Rooster. The shot immediately below is what has been currently selected for the album cover. I cooled the tones on the tighter head shot to give it a slightly more "mechanical" look.
