I had a photo shoot last weekend with a new Australian Rap group called 27 Politics. It was a good shoot. They are an emerging group and needing some promo shots.
This shoot was done almost entirely with natural light. Luckily it was overcast and the light was good. The original idea was to shoot in an indoor skate park, but it wasn’t really working. Luckily I was able to use the concrete wall of the carpark almost like a studio wall. Not bad for an improvised solution.
The shot to the left was taken near the end in a little laneway near a factory. Having the wall so close acted as a nice blocker allowing some definition to T’s face. All this without paying for a studio.
All in all it was a good day. I may end up helping out with their next music video. That should be an interesting change. They have a director already, I would just be working on some ideas. All the creativity, none of the pressure.
