George and Charles are releasing a new album this December and needed photos for the front cover, inside booklet and back cover. For this shoot, I kept two primary ideas in mind. First, the photos need to reflect their musical style. I had them send me a few of their quintessential songs and also reference photos of other musicians. Both of these steps proved helpful in understanding precisely what type of mood to convey in the photography. Second, I had to compose the photos in a square format for the front and back cover. Even if we came away with incredible images that were of normal rectangular dimensions, these wouldn’t fulfill the purpose of the shoot. A simple remedy for this is to always shoot wide. Thanks to the 21 megapixel images, we can crop in post without losing much detail. The shoot was a great time. As we were shooting in Prospect Park on a beautiful fall morning, I had to keep reminding myself that this was actually work. I love that feeling!
