I was contacted by a band to shoot some promos for them. They are Dreams - The Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute based out of Vancouver, BC, Canada. They had recently had a change in their line up and needed to update their promo material for print and the website. We booked in at Mystic Rhythms Photo Studio for a 3 hour session. The concept was to recreate 3 poses/looks of Fleetwood Mac in the 70’s. Complete with wardrobe, we set out on creating the images.
The first image was the recreating of a shot from backstage in a dressing room before Fleetwood Mac went on stage. With the help of Sean from Mystic Rhythms, we managed to create the backstage dressing room. The next image was a black and white where shadows and grain were the key to the shot. I went for a look of a classic film camera from the 70’s and processed the photo by dodging and burning it for the shadows then overlay the grain to complete the look. The last photo was a standard pose of the band. Using reference photos for all 3, we worked on recreating height, looks, facial expressions, wardrobe, and body positions. All in all I think we nailed the look of Fleetwood Mac. My thanks to all the Dreams members for a great shoot, and Sean for his help with the locker room creation! It’s all about the hanger! LOL
