Hell Yes! That was the reply I typed when I was asked if I was available to do some promotional images for a rock band.
With no real ideas the band left the locations and the ideas to me, so I picked Hanover Quay with plans to head right down the end overlooking the 3Arena but on arrival a group of foreign gypsies families have parked their caravans up there, and it was not the idea spot we had thought!
The best part for me is the creative stuff and playing with light, while I cannot share the images at the moment or the identity of the band – I can share that we used all our nicelight lighting products.
Getting the height we needed to light the band the way we wanted was achieved using our 360cm (106″) Light Stand, what a hero product it was. People stopped and asked us about our Battery Operated Studio Light which was perfect because of it’s portability, weight and power. It worked like a champ to give us the lovely balanced light to get the band members lit correctly but still holding onto the light and details in the background. Our modifier of choice was one we think is particularly fab – a very large 153cm (60″) Silver umbrella that we used both wide open and also closed down to give us a more funneled light. These 3 products were all we needed to make light like this! All images are straight out of the camera to give you an idea of just how good they looked – and many thanks to my VAL – Voice Activated Light Stand, Fran who was so helpful and great fun.
When we are allowed we will share the final images and the name and details of the band! It’s all good here at nicelight, we are living the Rock n’ Roll dream!
Rock on! Michelle & Fran
