A few days ago, one of my students asked me if I would take pictures of his band. He said they wanted to set up their instruments in front of a creepy old abandoned house and have that be the backdrop for the shoot. I thought that sounded pretty cool, so I agreed.
When the time came for us all to meet, I found out that plans changed. My mental picture of sepia-toned, moody shots in front of a ramshackle old farmhouse were shot down when Sean produced a chainsaw from his trunk.
“Yeah, uhhhh…plans kind of changed.” It turns out they decided not to bring all the instruments, but instead to bring baseball bats, a chainsaw, an axe, a crowbar, and other assorted weaponry to this place and stage a destruction of sorts. Being the flexible photographer I am, I went with it!
Here is a sample of the day’s results!
