This image has turned out to be one of the most cherished photographs of my collection. I shot this image recently while photographing Rocco DeLuca during a concert in Austin, TX. He was using a flood light as his only light source, and as you can see, it created this interesting texture of light and shadows.
Once in post production, I did a bit of treatment to the image by hand. I just kept going over it and over it until I got the final outcome, a beautiful and grainy black & white image with depth, detail and emotion. I now refer to this photo as ‘Mistress of the Night’.
I hope you enjoy the image as much as I do.
