part two of the wo-band interview for flux magazine. last issue, the girlfriends were interviewed by painted highways. this time around the painted highways were on the receiving end of a few jokes and the occasional meaningful question.
in keeping with the simple, available light theme that flux editorial staff set for the last piece, i shot this series in available light downtown on bishop st. a 50mm f/1.2 lens and lower shutter speed set the stage for my coverage of the interview.
by nature i am more of a minimalist, in that i don’t favor shooting staged scenes. so the images that follow are the actual, recorded interview between the two bands. while it seems pretty simple to stick your camera on a tripod, lock in a slow shutter speed at f/2, and snap off a picture of the bands, in actuality this shoot was quite challenging. for one thing, getting a clear shot of 7 fairly hyperactive guys takes a little timing and a lot of luck. and waiting for a bus to pass by takes patience and even more timing and good fortune.
but somehow the shoot came together. included in this gallery are outtakes from the shoot, other iamges i offered up to the editorial process.
i can’t wait to see what’s next.
PS: yeah, i know i haven’t been shooting a lot of parties or live shows. i’m sorry. a change of pace was what i needed, and it’s been nice. don’t worry, i have a few really big things in the works and i’ll keep updating here as things fall into place!
