Sometimes... you just have to step outside your normal style and design and try something crazy! I had been wanting to do a dark shoot since the day I came across the gritty photography style of Joey Lawrence's band shoots. While this isn't something I will have opportunity to do a lot of, on this day, it was truly a fun experience and one I won't soon forget. (I just wish I could have been at Arby's restaurant when they guys decided to stop for a bite to eat - without cleaning up first!)
PS. These guys are all good friends and NO ONE was harmed during the shoot. Each action was carefully choreographed and rehearsed in slow motion. Sort of takes away the brutality and grit of the images in knowing that, but when working with minors, you have to be smart!
