Surrounded By Giants are a rhythm and punk band from Chico, CA. I was pretty good friends with the guitarist and the drummer lived with my boyfriend, so I went to one of their practices to shoot some pictures and video.
This photoshoot was a pretty tricky shoot for a couple of reasons.
They practice in attic, with one window and minimal lighting. Capturing a loud band’s sound can be difficult enough let alone doing it in an attic. It also had a lot of stuff up there so maneuvering was…interesting to say the least.
I just sat in the middle of their practice to shoot on one camera, while I had several cameras set up around the room.
*NOTE: I have since stopped watermarking pictures for web because it looks totally lame. Also the whole name change thing…
