Soraya

Soraya graciously agreed to pose for me and ended up doing a fantastic job. We went out to dunes in Montano de Oro and played around with her hair, the sand, different poses, lighting, and the wind. This was the first shoot with my Canon 5d Mark II!

Band Photo Shoot #3: Axia

Posted in Music, Photography, Portraiture by daybf on October 17, 2009

My first formal group photo shoot was with Axia. They’re a hard/metal rock group out of San Luis Obispo, Ca. Listen to them on myspace and reverbnation.

This photo shoot was a challenge, because we met after dark. I ended up just using a single strobe off-camera and a white reflector for slightly softer light. Overall they were a lot of fun to work with and really easy going. Their spirit came through in the shots thanks to their energy!

Outside their practice space on Tank Farm Rd. (think industrial).
