I have been doing my Sigma 50mm backstage portraits series for awhile. I learn a lot every time I do it. This time I learned that the weather outside really does affect how people look and how my lens works when it is very humid. I had to scrap a lot of the portrait honestly because I just didn’t like how they turned out. So if you are a band viewing this blog and wondering where your image is from your Sigma 50mm Backstage Portraits… I probably didn’t use it. I always feel bad because when I am shooting a personal project people email me and request the images I took – but I don’t end up using them all. I am shooting to learn and for what I personally love, and I make mistakes and choose to not publish some images. So I am sorry to the subjects that I messed up on this time, I will get you next time. I owe you.
The only band I really made away with one very good portrait of each member was Citizen – view backstage portraits with Citizen
My location for the backstage portraits this time around was Pierce The Veil’s trailer- thank you for letting me use it! The light was A Profoto B1 shot through an Octabox with the background being a reflector. My camera was a Canon 5d Mark III with a Sigma 50mm f/1.4 and an ND filter to help me keep my aperture pretty wide open in daylight.
