I had a photo shoot yesterday in downtown Kansas City. I hadn't worked with the band before but I knew their style and have been friends with two of the members for a little while now, so it was a very relaxed shoot. As I was trying to plan out a shot we wanted to try and capture, I needed a way to frame them in the shot that would bring attention to them and not look 'plain' or 'boring' against a brick background or what not.
My quick tip is, if you have some sort of doorway or frame to use while shooting, using it can help frame your subjects to create separation.
Check out a few photos of the band Chica below, and post links to photos you've taken recently!
