A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to practice some band promotional shots with Sami (Vocals), Sean (Guitar/Bass), Nick (Guitar/Bass), and Kenny (Drums). Together, they make up the band, Alchemy.
When working with a band on their promotional photos, it is really important to take into account the band’s general vibe. You know, their sound…their style…their overall je ne sais quoi, if you will. This is particularly the case when you are considering lighting and poses. Alchemy’s style is Rock/Alternative, so we tried to convey something a little edgy with more dramatic lighting.
If you want to get a little taste of their style, check out Alchemy online or support them during Round 2 of the Battle of the Bands on March 16, 2012 at Chicago Pizza & Sports Grille in Kennesaw, GA. Want a chance to practice posing models or experimenting with a different type of photography than your norm, hang out with the Atlanta Photographers Guild (APG) every other Tuesday evening.
