Fever Pitch • North Main Music

Fever Pitch (North Main Music)

Fever Pitch is an acapella group formed by students of North Main Music.  They needed some promotional photography that would be used on their website and for press releases for print, and Mike, the owner of North Main Music brought the gang by the studio one evening so we could create some photography for them.  Mike is a great guy, and I'm happy that he's hired me in the past for some of their photography needs.

I wanted to do a simple session on white, so that they could crop or extended the images as needed for posters and other various sized print materials.

Mike grabbed a shot of me while I played human-jenga and positioned the group:

If you get a chance to check them out locally, catch them singing.  It's good stuff.  And make sure you swing by North Main Music, especially if you are thinking about taking classes, or giving the gift of a class to someone important to you.

I met musician/photographer/blogger Hana Kahn through my friend/photographer Kathleen Frank who recently moved to NH from Florida.  We've been itching to get together and mess around and spend the afternoon making photographs, and, finally one lovely August afternoon we made it happen.

I didn't shoot a whole lot - I enjoyed helping Kathleen out with her images and just enjoying the creative process and the weather.  I brought along my Hasselblad & grabbed a Polaroid (image above) and grabbed a few shots with the Petzval.

My favorite shot from the session, though, would have to be the first image up top (and here it is again:)

This was taken using my tasty little $12 prism I bought off of Amazon.  I love how having the prism in front of the lens, twisted in the right way, gives off that gorgeous, milky out of focus bottom.  It's picking up the light and refracting it through the prism and creates what looks like this gorgeous foreground element that I'm shooting through.  I love her pose and the colors and the background.  It's a very atmospheric portrait.

It was a really fantastic afternoon, and I wish I could have afternoons like that more often.  Thanks to Hana and Kathleen for making it possible. Go visit Kathleen's website and Hana's as well.  Thanks ladies for a fantastic afternoon.
