Black ROCK!

30 October 2009

Last Friday a few of us got together out at Black Rock out on the south shore of the Great Salt Lake to do a Rock Band photoshoot.   The event was spearheaded by Nathan Marx and included Scott O. Smith, Rob Snow (and wife Julie) as well as models Bekah and Shane.     Kudo’s go to everyone but especially Rob and Julie who had to drive separate cars because of all the drum, and photography equipment.    Julie has written a great behind the scenes post over on their blog.   Scott has a post here, and more pictures here.

. . . a dream!

Bekah (pictured above) is a great model to work with.   She is always willing to put up with our photographer quirks.

One thing I learned …  I need a LOT more practice with strobist style photography.   While the other photographers where getting out and setting up their light stands, strobes, umbrellas, radio triggers, etc.   I just stood there and watched with a “deer in the strobelight” look on my face.

Rob was a trooper hauling all this gear out to the lake!
