Meet the boys of the band, Assemble the Skyline. The boys are from left to right: Austin, Luke, Nick and Max. Steve and I had the pleasure of shooting the band last Friday. It was a great shoot.
Why? Well, to begin with, the guys are really fine young men. They were willing to do anything that Steve or I asked them to do. So naturally, we tried all sorts of new things. Second, I got to play with my new Pocketwizard triggers. I was impressed with their performance, but must admit there is a learning curve with them.
This photo is all natural light. It was behind the stage in Galveston. I wanted the photo to have a behind the scenes look so I used the stage hangers as props to frame the band.
Camera settings: Nikon D3, Nikon 28-70mm f/2.8 shot at ISO 800, f/8 and 1/350th of a second.
Lightroom 3—Set black and white points, cropped photo and added a vignetting.
Photoshop CS5—used nik Silver Efex Pro to convert the photo to black and white.
