These are some random portraits from Warped Tour last year. I shot them for a project originally, but they ended up just being practice. I also edited them a crap ton just to see how it would look and to learn some new techniques. A bunch of band dudes at the end of a 2 month long tour. I shot half of these by the tour buses and half on the stage behind the drum set. A few of my set up pictures below. The project would have had them all cut out, but for this I just left em with the backdrop.
Lighting goal was to have a super soft light on everyones face and the backlight was mostly to make cutting out easier, had I done it. You can tell which portraits I took at night because the subjects eyes are so dilated.
