A collegiate flautist came to me to get a publicity shot for his final concert. I worked with him for a while and the poor guy had the most forced facial expressions I've ever worked with. Trying to get a deliverable image, I changed gears big time and tried to go with something where he didn't feel like he had to interact directly with the camera. When I pitched a film noir-looking shot to him, he smiled, so I figured that was the idea to go with. That being said, it doesn't look anything like my normal work so I'm not sure what to think of it.
What do you guys think?
