The thunderstorm that is passing through reminded me of the last thunderstorm that I shot through. Hoping that it doesn't repeat, this particular storm knocked out the power for several hours. Having family in from town for only a day or two meant that a reschedule for the remaining images was not a possibility. What does a photographer do without light? They create enough light to make the camera focus correctly and to finish the shoot. The images below were shot in pitch black. Could you tell? The client couldn't.
Brian has been a poet and author of short stories. He has been in the creative field for a long time but has recently changed pseudonyms. Check his author page out on Facebook here. He wanted something that showed a lot of character and personality and displayed the darkness in his art form. I think we definitely nailed that while managing to make a number of photographs that I am very excited to share with him and the world! It is quite exciting when his artistic vision and mine were so well aligned for this shoot.
