Photoshoot for Local Bands Album Cover & Editorial

Recommended Posts

Just got some good word this morning. I sent the following photos for the band to review before I continued on.  The band approved the creative direction and is curious to see what more I have

to create. so now I get to keep going, and when completed they should have about 15-20 of the best photos, 1-2 photos from each scene. from there they will take the time to pick and choose what works for their album and which one is gonna be the cover.

I gave them the full set of raws and told them to just shoot me the ones they would like to see edited so I know im giving them every option I can.. 

These 3 were a lovely bunch, with a very specific style old timey, Baroque Dark Ages as described by them music. e all just knew how to express and interpret. All I can really say is I dug deep into my inner Edgar Allen Poe and went nuts.

Their described vision is suppose to be a timeless, over exposed, very beat up photo feel. They like the out of focus but still pretty kinda photo. so basically I messed up on purpose a lot and hoped for a cookie lol

Very nice. All dramatic. A little harsh, but a little romantic also.

I really like the movement of the second to bottom image (that and the gritty urban feel).

For me, the movement of the band members toward each other indicates energy and eventual collision creating a nucleus ... after all this is a group and as well music, by its nature, is not static.

If you're not already aware of this book check it out. If you can get into it I'm quite certain you'll be taking bigger creative steps/growth with your art.

I like most of these images, 6th and last one I can live without but I love the 5th one and second to last. I reckon the 4th one and the second to last would work merged together, but looks like you had some fun.
