“See, I know my destination, but I’m just not there
All the street lights
Happen to be just like moments passing in front of me.”
– Kanye West
I love streetlights! The overhead glow is perfect for photography at night. It creates nice shadows and drama without having to drag along a softbox. The top photo is the lead singer, Nathaniel Shepherd, of the alt-rock band G2P. We met for an interview and there was no real scenic place to shoot so we went into the parking lot. I love the drama of the cigarette. Very cool!
This photo next photo is blues-rock band rumHoney. I met them for a photo shoot and interview at Finsbury Pub in London. The venue is located in sort of a neighborhood so we took a series of photos under streetlights along a concrete wall. Then the guys walked over to the streetlight and started chatting, acting goofy. I captured the photo right when a double-decker bus was going down the street, adding to the intrigue. I think the photo is really interesting.
