The boys of metalcore band Novella have been making a splash on the scene, from playing Warped Tour to a public beef with The Devil Wears Prada. In between all the notoriety, I caught up with the guys for a photo shoot downtown at a posh hotel.
Here are a few shots from the session:
After the full group portraits, we did a few individuals just for fun, with one common theme: getting up close and personal at 14mm.
Overall, the band went into this shoot with an interest in images with a lighter feel than some of the other shots they'd had done. They were over the dark and dingy look they'd had in the past, and keen on a slightly brighter look
All these shots were made with a simple three-light set up. We used an SB-600 into a 60″ umbrella as the key light, with two bare SB-600s for kicker and fill.
Big shout out to the guys of Novella for being great subjects. Thanks to Dave Mullis for assisting and consulting on this shoot.
