Porchfest 2013 - Somerville, Mass.

People piled out onto the streets, and listened for the far off sound of their neighbors. Amps and drum-sets set out on the porch, the bands struck up a tune while the masses ambled to their doors.

Headshots for instrumentalists

Last week I wrapped up some head shots for a great friend, Liza Malamut. She's working on her DMA at BU, and plays the Sackbut and modern trombone.

Group shots

Sometimes I cheat.

The more people in a frame, the more faces you have to capture at just the right moment. I'm not always that good, so sometimes I cheat. This is an example where I shot 6-7 frames, and then mashed up the faces in post. But, what makes this shot is the lighting. You can't fake great lighting.
