A few weeks ago, I shot some new promos/cover art for a local upcoming rapper. Rahshawn is Christian hip hop artist whose music is gaining some traction around the country.
For the images, Rahshawn wanted standard studio shots which is not my mainstay. So the task was to inject my style into the ultimate of minimalist. There’s not much you can do with an infinity drop.
In the end, I decided to add a little smooth and umph by some color overlays. That combined with some great wardrobe, I think really gave Rahshawn the simplicity he was looking for while allowing me to maintain the fashion vibe and jazzy feel I desire out of my images.
*Fun note: Sometimes I crop as I shoot. Which sometimes proves beneficial in the time saving processing department. And then other times it means I have to build a head, a back, or in the case of the second shot an elbow. Maybe more is more.
