I was asked to shoot the album art for the fashion-conscious musician Granite Chief. I wanted to create a cover image that would pop graphically (framing, lighting, color, etc.), while also paying homage to his love of street fashion and classic American automobiles.
We shot at high noon on a sunny day, utilizing the High Speed Sync capability of the MOVE kit to add color and contrast with gelled strobes. The high sun gave the hard drop shadow that I wanted as a graphic part of the image, and the strobes provided drama. I prefer to work "in camera," so everything you see is in the RAW file - including all of the color.
Granite Chief selected this file as his cover art for his E.P., "Haunt You"
