CD Album Art - Phoenix Arizona - dee jay - DJ's Band

    Newer Older

    I was in Downtown in Phoenix near the tracks yesterday afternoon to photograph some bums. This is what I found. They cleaned up very well. :-)


    Fellow photographer & friend Fred Ferguson had a project for his client and asked if I wanted to tag along and help wrangle gear, lights etc. I photographed some behind the scenes photos and a few second camera angles. Here is one of my photos.

    Best viewed on black, or large on black.

    We were thinking "square" for a CD cover sort of look. I did not want power poles sticking out of heads, so the camera angle and each man's position was important to make for an interesting background without doing the "pole in the head" look...... I removed one small item from the background (light on one pole), but overall don't mine the power lines "connecting" the lines visually.

    SB-800 camera right, zoomed in, but no light modifier
    Fired via PW
    edge light = evening SUN
