Jam Room, environmental portraits

I took these portraits of Jay Matheson, recording at The Jam Room music studio in February 2011.

It was my first session using a strobe flash. I kept forgetting that the flash reflects the color it bounces off.


I happen to like the dreamy effect of underwater blue from the equipment storage room where this shot was taken. Before some photoshop tweaking, Jay was just as blue as the amps.

Of course, you can desaturate and remove color entirely.



The Jam Room is celebrating 25 years in the business with a music festival this fall.
