Finally had some time to hunt for the perfect background for this Seattle Band. I knew it was going to be at night and downtown but that was all I knew. There's nothing quite like Pioneer square at night on a weekend. Suffice it to say, I only had one earpiece in while listening to music and searching for our background. Each person was lit with a boomed beauty dish overhead with an Einstein 640. Rim lights provided by gridded striplights on either side and slightly behind with alienbees b800's. Fill was accomplished with a large octabox just behind me with an Interfit EXD400. Adjustments to shadows made in Lightroom and composite put together with 28 different layers in Photoshop. Members photographed in West Seattle Studio.
