First Crossing

I got the honor of shooting the album cover photo for my friend Tom Henry's new CD. This guy is an amazing guitar player and I jumped at the opportunity to work with him on this (although, I use the term "jumped" loosely - it took us a while to get our schedules aligned so that we could actually do it). But once we did, we met at his place where he has a beautiful pond in the front yard, with a little dock and rowboat... what a perfect setting for an album called "First Crossing".
Shot in nearly direct sunlight (above and right), there were a few wispy clouds, but the light was rather harsh with a couple of speedlights side by side on full power just out of view on the left.
