I had quite a musical spring with some talented senior musicians. With this senior, I got my hands on a drummer. He had an awesome full head of hair and an attitude that was made for a serious look. He rocked a serious, intense look. A lot of times, senior boys are not into having their pictures taken. They are doing it for their mom. And that’s fine, but I do try to make it a good experience for them.
I love this close up of him.
That hair is just too great. I think I’m jealous of it. LOL
When I did this image, I told him he looked like a model. Check out that jawline! I love this spot with the pillars. Makes for a great picture.
He wasn’t always serious. He did smile sometimes, too.
Now, when they told me he was a drummer, I asked what type (I have a percussionist son, so I’m well versed in all things with a beat). His favorite was the drum kit. As soon as they said that, I instantly had an idea that I have been wanting to do. I told them they could feel free to say no, but asked if they would be willing to let me put water on their drums sort of like Blue Man Group. It definitely took some experimenting to get it right in terms of the colored gels and the water placement, but I love the end result. Biggest tip – normally drum heads would be tiled toward him, but water runs right off them if you do that. As we learned quickly. LOL So you have to have them truly flat to make it work.
