Backstage Portraits with Pierce The Veil, letlive. , Memphis May Fire, and Issues

This is my fourth time doing these backstage portraits. Whether or not I can do the shoot depends on if the venue 3 white walls, a white ceiling, and a backstage area people actually hang out in. If it doesn’t at least have these, my shoot is going to be difficult. The first three times I did it everything worked out pretty well. I ran into a few problems but fixed em up, this time- not so lucky. I had been shooting Pierce The Veil all day and for their shoot I had purchased a white seamless roll or backdrop paper. It was the last day of the tour so I had to get the shots. I tried to make two more walls with the limited gear I had. Don’t just me. Long story short -here is what it looked like.


580ex on stand shot to left against white paper as main light, collapsed box as reflector for fill and white backdrop as a white backdrop. The main part that I failed on was placing the fill reflector, about half of my shots were too dark on the left side of the subjects face, our right. So I ended up scraping a good portion of the portraits. Apologies to the people I shot and didn’t end up using the images for, it’s not you – it’s me.

But, that is okay. I figure not making half a shoot out of four shoots work isn’t that bad of a track record. Here are the portraits I did get away with.
