16 Sep Woodstock New York CD Photography | Lindsey Webster
Lindsey Webster again? Yes again, and better than ever! I have had the pleasure of photographing Lindsey several times before and the shoots have always yielded a nice batch of images for Lindsey and her band to use as promo and album covers. This time the pressure felt like it was on a bit more as The Lindsey Webster Band has just signed on with a new label. So everyone involved from Lindsey to her label people seemed to be concerned about getting specific images they could use for the upcoming album and show promo material. This of course adds pressure on the day of the shoot. I have never not performed on a shoot so i was not so worried, but i do want everyone to be happy so I did feel some pre-shoot concern. I had done a lot of research into what I wanted to capture so we could shoot without over thinking the moment. Normally I let my shoots evolve a bit more organically as we are going along but on this one I had 4 concrete ideas that I wanted to explore, and also because we had more people involved it helped keep on schedule. Speaking of more people, I would be remiss to not mention the wonderful hair and makeup person we used, AnneMichelle Radcliffe. AnneMichelle brought in a full on suitcase of goodies and she was a pro! I cannot reiterate how important good makeup and hair can be. It will take so much time off of the post production end of any job not to mention that the look is really established before your subject even steps in front of the camera. So with hair and make up ready to go Lindsey sat in front of the camera and we started with the hardest shot which was the cover. Having worked with Lindsey in the past certainly helped put her at ease, but in all honesty she was great without my direction. We shot for an hour or two with a gray backdrop and changed up the set and did a few more things before we headed out to uptown Kingston to shoot some environmental images. In all we came away with many really nice images many you might have seen already as Lindsey is already using them for various social media announcements. Lindsey’s new album is scheduled to release in November 2016, can’t wait to hear it and see the images featured. Want more info, go check out her website for all the details. Thanks Lindsey!
