The Hoosiers by Adam Gasson / SWNS.com

Portfolio Series #4

I photographed The Hoosiers for the Independent’s Arts & Review magazine at the start of their UK tour. The venue, the Academy, is next to a large NCP car park that offered views of the city and some excellent graffiti as a backdrop. I had this shot in mind from the start and during scouting before the shoot knew it would work. We’d already shot a couple of setups when I suggested the shot. The PR on the shoot wasn’t too keen but the guys were already up for it and running down the stairs. The shot wasn’t chosen for the feature but it still remains my personal favourite from the shoot.
It was shot on a 50mm f/1.2 which, at large apertures, vignettes nicely – which works very well for the shot.
