Photo shoot for album art

Yesterday I took some photos of myself. The photo will be used in the artwork for an upcoming album of mine (one of four albums I have mostly completed).

I had almost the exact image in mind for months, so getting it right didn’t take long. Due to getting new windows and doors with rolling shutters, I could work on it during the day and not worry about leaking sunlight. The setup was super simple, a single strobe (with a snoot) strung up on the ceiling, and all the light on my face reflected up from the piano and floor. Here’s a wider angle, before I made the snoot and resulting pattern of light rounder.

I took a lot more photos of me at the piano, of course. I’ll use these for other elements of the album art. And, because this is the internet, why not make a gif?
