about this image
This electronica duo needed something moody and dramatic to use as a cover for their upcoming EP, and they wanted something that could also be repurposed as a website header or promotional poster. So I kept the background clean to facilitate dropping in text and/or logos, and used a sidelighting technique that I knew would add an overall air of mystery to the image.
tools & gear used
Not a ton of Photoshop going on here-- just some minor lighting adjustments to keep the drama level as high as possible, and of course I had to combine two separate images into a single shot (and clean up the background).
