Claude Young's personality shone through during our photo session at my studio in Los Angeles. We scheduled the shoot the day before so I did not have much time to prepare. Claude made it easy to capture his bright personality. He was cracking jokes and forcing me to laugh at myself because I was so focused on lighting, background distance from the subject, his facial position and making sure my settings were on point. If I am going to get the best shots I have to make sure my settings are right man ;) If anyone knows about proper settings it would be a precise producer like Claude himself.
I put some Digital Underground on to keep the good times rolling and our photo shoot was definitely a hit. I hope we can do another session in the future and keep the creative juices flowing. Working with other artists is one of my favorite joys in life. I feel so lucky to be able to do it time and time again.
