Want to see how a music magazine shoot happens? Check out this behind the scenes vid of my Alternative Press Magazine cover photo shoot with the band Crown The Empire. This would be my second time photographing the band for the cover of this magazine.
Images captured using my Phase One IQ140 medium format and Profoto D1 flash heads. Power for the flashes were provided by Paul C. Buff Vagabond Mini power packs.

Do you like behind the scenes videos? Want to see how I put together a lot of my shoots? I added a huge video gallery to my website so you can see most of the behind the scenes photo and video shoot videos I have ever created. Even if you follow most things I post, I guarantee that there are a few on there you haven’t seen. There’s everything on there from fighter jets to zombies to supercars to celebrities. Of course you can find all of these on this blog, but figured you would like having them all in one place as well.

I used two strip lights / narrow softboxes to use as edge lights on the subjects to separate them from the background. You can also see a behind the scenes photo at the bottom of this post.
