EWS Band Promo
EWS (Everwaiting Serenade) was the first concert that I’ve shot. When I was done taking my pictures I really had big doubts. I was used shooting in the studio with controlled light and rather static subjects. The result was not as bad as I had feared and the band really enjoyed the shots.
Fastforward to last month, we’re in touch for a Band shoot. They were in dire need of some shots for various supports. It took us a month to find the correct location for the shoot. We decided for 3 locations and several sets at each.
The studio shoot was the first one. The Canon 5D was used along with the 24-105F4L, 70-200F2.8L and 50F1.8 lenses. Elinchrom flashes with a Beauty Dish and small 60×60 Softbox, a Walimex flash for the background or backlight depending on the setup. And finally some reflectors for fill light here and there.
The second location was the restaurant “Opium“, we’ve had an hour for our 3 sets so things went quite fast there. We were done in 35 minutes which allowed us to shoot a 4th set and squeeze some portrait shots in. Here we used a combination of Elinchrom strobes with a softbox and a beauty dish. The people at “Opium” were very nice and had a lot of patience. Shooting there was a blast.
