Album Cover Photo Shoot

Had a great day today with the Daybreak Quartet on a photo and video shoot. I will post about the video stuff later, but I thought I would put up a few photos from what we shot in downtown Atlanta this afternoon. Click the image on the left to see a larger version.

It was a chilly day out and the skies were gray at best, but we were able to find some really neat locations in about a four block area near Centennial Olympic Park. One skyscraper had a circular walkway going all the way around it and the light happened to be coming through just right when we snapped the picts. It made for a very futuristic and high-energy look that will work great for album artwork. Of course, as you can see, there were several other good possibilities for covers or promo photos as well. The old church with the three archways looks cool, but I have no idea what they will do with it. Maybe a good shot for the website or something. We shot with a Canon 7D and a Canon 35mm f1.4 lens for everything. With a little touching up, the photos will work well, although I was reminded again how deficient I am in the still photography realm. Oh, well. Every experience is a learning experience, so it was a good day.
