Last Wednesday I took some photos of the guys in {else}, a metal band here in Milwaukee. I used my Nikon D3200, and a combination of a fast prime lens and the zoom lens that came with the camera.

I also put a fair amount of time into pictures that either feature one member of the band, or leave the others out entirely. I figure that these will be good photos to use any time they want to feature one member of the band for whatever reason (particularly the vocalist, Shane, in blue) and that it’d also be nice for the guys to have a band photo, of themselves, to put up on social media the week of an upcoming show.

I think I have a little bit to learn about posing and framing, but I did manage to avoid some bad shots anyway. My biggest area for improvement is likely processing photos after a shoot at this point. All I’ve done with these is applied some basic effects that are part of iPhoto, but I really ought to invest in Adobe Lightroom or something similar.
