We needed a band shot for our cd so my band decided to come over for drinks, and of course...the band shot!
So we went to my mini studio and took some shots. We are a crossover/thrash band so we decided to go with the dark/dramatic shot that most metal bands long for.
For this shot I put 2 lights on each side at 45 degrees. The main light on the right side and a fill light on the left to make the lighting a bit dramatic. Since this is a group shot, I opted for a wide focal length and a narrower aperture. F11 to be exact.
Post processed in Photoshop to tone down the colors a bit for that dark/dramatic look.
