Subject: Joe, Tim, and Sudor (from From Heaven With A Gun)
Title: 2005 Promotional Photos
Used For: Chosen by the band, to be on the official website/MySpace/etc.
Film Type: Kodak 400 TMax & FujiFilm 400 Superia X-Tra
Scan Quality: The b&w's scanned a lot better than the coloured ones.

Taken At: Baseball field, with a horizon line of trees and cars passing by in the background.
Lighting: Pitch black, with no street lights close enough to have an effect on anything. The only reason I saw where I was shooting, was with the help of the AF-assist (preview light) on my camera.
The Method To My Madness: Because it was pitch black, my subjects turned out nice and sharp with the background straight black. The light lines in the back are motion blurred cars, that were really far away. The car blurs are not in each shot, simply because they weren't any cars driving by for 2/5 members!
Notes: It was hard to get a serious photo out of these guys. Especially, since most of the time I was guesstimating the photo. But overall, these turned out a lot better than I anticipated. And please remember, these were taken for a band, so they're not going to be oozing with creativeness. They're meant to be very simple.
