47″ octabox boomed over the band, reflector camera left, two speedlights for rimlighting behind the band.
I caught up with Blake, Sierra, and Devin of VersaEmerge on the Love Drunk Tour for a portrait shoot. We shot with a handful of Nikon Speedlights and one Alien Bees B800 with the 47″ octabox – here are the results.
Nikon SB-900 clamped behind the band, Alien Bees B800 fired through an 47″ octabox above the camera.
Alien Bees B800 fired through a 47″ octabox camera right, 45″ silver reflector camera left, Nikon SB-900 fired camera right behind the band.
I had a great time with VersaEmerge – Sierra, Blake, and Devin were all super nice, which always helps on a shoot. I met up with the band in their dressing room at the Pageant, then we walked over to the Moonrise Hotel just down the street.
The Moonrise Hotel is a nice little boutique hotel that opened up earlier this year, and thanks to Harry Lunt, the marketing and sales director for the establishment, we were able to shoot there for the portrait session. Overall, we shot at a total of four separate locations in and around the hotel for this shoot.
For these images, we used a mix of one Alien Bees B800 and several Nikon Speedlights, including three Nikon SB-900s and a couple of Nikon SB-600s. One SB-900 was used as the TTL commander, and the AB was triggered via PC-sync cord.
Thanks to Chelsi, Jessy and Mike for helping coordinate this shoot. Shout out to Blake, Sierra, and Devin for being great subjects.
Finally, thanks to my assistants David and Allyssa.
