Scott, Age: 40
It was cool to finally get a musician in for a Fellow Forty portrait. Scott plays bass guitar and I thought it would be cool to photograph him with an upright bass. As luck would have it, I stumbled onto someone who lives right by me that had one!
The shoot couldn’t have been simpler. Basically Scott sat there playing-more or less in his own world – while I tried moving the lights around and shooting. I ended up liking this shot best.
I adjusted the tone and added texture until the image took on this dark, moody quality.
