Happy New Year 2011

The last of my 2010 sessions was with Stark Sands and Gem Clarke.  

This was for the second of their weird, wild, and wacky annual holiday cards.  

We had great fun shooting on stage at the St. James Theater in New York City.  Stark - currently starring in the hit Rock Opera "American Idiot" - was fabulously feline in costume and makeup from the hit Broadway show Cats, and Gem was gorgeously goofy with a huge blonde wig, fake glasses, and a dental retainer.

The resulting composite - shown below - was a hoot.  

This was a fun and creative departure from corporate headshots, and family portrait photography.  

For those techies who want to know the details, this was shot with a Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 24-70 f2.8 lens.  Lighting came from two off-camera Canon 580EX II strobes, with an umbrella on the main light.  Composite of two images created in Photoshop.
