Jordan Page

Here’s another shot of the musician, Jordan Page in the burned out bus. This bus caught fire from an electrical short, the passengers decided to walk rather than wait for the backup ride, I wonder why? Not the best day of publicity for mass transit.  Jordan is actually sitting on the bus in the bus parking lot and I’m standing in another bus (burned out too) with my ringflash shooting down on him. I set up an SB800 behind and in front of him. The background was added later. I told him to relax and just strum away, then he broke into the song “The wheels on the bus go round and round…..” Now that had us laughing.

    Perfect Execution of an Idea!! Was the Reach Your Destination planned?
    Hi Mike, Yes “Reach Your Destination” is very much part of Jordan’s message in his lyrics.ReplyCancel

    Love the effect here in particular – very realistic – and the ring flash was a good choice! What made you think to use that? I usually associate ring flash with product and macro photography…
    Hi Jason, Ringflash is popular in fashion photography too. I picked up the idea by studying fashion catalogs and thought I’d give it a try. ReplyCancel

    Another stunner! I love all of the effort that goes into your work and I always am blown away by the finished product! This got fantastic results and I hope Jordan is pleased!ReplyCancel

    I don’t like it, but it’s just me not liking the overprocessed photos.ReplyCancel
