Mike Clark, the talented owner of Mikey's Juke Joint in Sunalta, opened a new live music venue on 12th Ave named Mikey's in May of this year. He's also releasing a new album with his group, The Mike Clark Band called Forever People.
This was the first time in a while I actually got to construct some lighting, which I always love. In this case I did a fairly simple three light setup while maintaining some of the ambient stage lighting.
- Key light was 64" parabolic light modifier camera left
- Rim light was a 12" strip over the subjects shoulder camera right
- Back splash was 20 ° grid pointed down.
Simple and clean. while still allowing some of the ambient to bleed in. The stage was slightly raised which gave me a clean line to a more "hero" style image.
