No more caterpillars, roses, daisies tonight...This is for the hip, chic kids of today :-) This was a series in a project I was doing on young guitarists. There were other shots I liked, but the model ended up liking this one. There is a little blur in the image, but in this game, you really got to go with what the client wants. The emphasis here is the model, and the product, which is the amplifier in the background. The idea was to show the artist, and the amp in the backdrop without drawing too much attention to the amp, keeping it in the background like an old, trusted friend. Let me know what you think, and what you would do differently. Thanks for lookin' ...Sam

Note: I gather this is a hard one to call. That is OK. This was shot in the guitarist's cramped apartment, so I could not control all the elements like a studio shot. I guess the thing one can learn from this one is simply this...Sometimes when you shoot for others, you will come to realize that they often will choose an image that is different from the one that you, the photographer may choose. Those who have already shot for someone else will probably know that, those who haven't, keep that in mind! And if it becomes a paying gig, remember the old saying..."the customer is always right" even if he's wrong :-)
...and yes, the fellow gave me permission to post the shot.

Did I miss you yesterday?
Did you call by and nudge me?
Yes and no, I think.
Difficult to make a call, Sam, as the client gave you the brief? The mirror (?) on the wall demands a LOT of attention and maybe I would have played that down, even though it isn't reflecting anything much at all. I have an idea in my mind which would have depended on a very low POV, looking up at your musician who would have been standing with legs splayed wide, the amp in the b/g again and the musician in the 'act' of playing rather than just standing there looking rather sheepish and unemployed. Can you viz that?
Hey - don't be a stranger?

Hi Sam,
interesting...I like the mirror and the part of the painting in the background... The tilt is ok too. Maybe I would I've like to see the model's reflection (or a part of him) in the mirror...
Well done : )

I don't know about that Sam! I think the man had no idea of art... just a 15er, of course! I'm sure you did better ones but... that's it! The amplifier stands good there, but the mirror is ugly :)))) and the poster confusing, and he's just holding that griff like he wouldn't know anything about it, looking towards the camera with that hair in the eyes - oh, that must've hurt - that's why I cut my son's hair from the forehead, young people shouldn't stay like this, it's bad for vision. :))))))))
My english again and it gets you going in circles :)))))))

This is a very nice capture with very good colours!
Great idea!
