Notes on band promos for A Crowd Like You:

When the guys came to me and said they wanted to do some new promos, I decided I really wanted to get a specific look and shoot it inside.  Similar to the shots I did for My Kingdom, I used a 4 light set up (2 side rim lights, one beauty dish as main/fill and a backlight with a gel) for the standard “guys looking tough shot.  But once I brought out a black backdrop, we started to do the shots I had in mind for this band.  They’re a fun band, and I really wanted to use some props and just mess around.

Also note, the top 3 shots are retouched and finalized, the rest here and just fun ones that I like.

For promos, I really want to move more in to conceptualized things, and really plan it out.  The “people standing around bored” thing is done to death, and I just want to bring something new to the table.
