Living Things for Nylon Magazine ::
I have a lot of blog posts to make with recent work and very little time to make them. These images are from my shoot with Living Things. This was an assignment for Nylon Magazine. I’ve completed four assignments for Nylon and as they hit the shelves I’ll blog about them. The assignment was to shoot the band, individuals, and cover their show here in Atlanta. I haven’t worked with a better group of artists than these four guys.
I put out a question on Twitter during this assignment asking if I should take a 5d with a 90mm lens or a D3 with a 24mm lens. The D3 combo won. I finished the assignment with one camera and one lens.
Living Things are an effing amazing live band. If you ever have the chance to see them live don’t pass it up.
I shot typical live shots like this…
But… I wanted something different than straight forward live shots. Being I was shooting with the D3 I put the camera in multiple exposure mode and lit a fire of creativity under my arse. I’m now experimenting more with multiple exposure. Yes, you can shoot single frames and then composite them together in PhotoChop, but sometimes you need to come up with something different while not depending on software to do it later.
Shooting a live show with multiple exposures is maddening because you can’t be exactly sure what you are going to get but that is the payoff. Sometimes it surprises you in a good way.
Do any of you experiment with in camera multiple exposure?
