"Capturing the character and personality of a band in the short amount of time a photographer has to work with them, is a daunting task. Here in Sky Eats Airplane .02 by ~stuckwithpins the photographer had to not only shoot the band in active poses, but did it while fans of the band were looking on in the parking lot! Plus, front to back every band member is crystal clear, and this is a solid shot that one would see on the cover of a magazine, which is certainly in the future for this young and very talented photographer!" - words by JeremySaffer

Sky Eats Airplane .02

Promo for Sky Eats Airplane

models: Zack, Travis, Lee, Johno, Jerry
photographer: me
camera model: Canon EOS 5D Mark II
lens: Canon EF 24-105mm L
editing done by: me
editing program: Camera Raw 4.0 & Adobe Photoshop CS3
date taken: 4/24/09

strobist info:
1) AB800 shot through large softbox frame right
2) AB800 shot bare at frame left

I'm pretty happy with this shot!
The guys wanted to actually play the game while I took pictures, but that proved to be a really bad idea. Playing Twister on rocky ground is painful. Everyone is cheating.

Well deserved DD man. Not many of them really catch my attention, and even less for journalism/band photos, but i'm incredibly impressed with this. Great work, agree every word of the suggesters words :heart: x
