The album cover for country/folk singer-songwriter, Lauren Lane, has just been shot by Bignote’s photographer, Paul Williams!
This young Gold Coast musician’s upcoming album title is ‘In my head’, so we proposed that the shot reflected an intimacy that is fitting for this very personal collection of songs. By posing Lauren with an old suitcase of keepsakes and unspecified treasures, this shot becomes a nice visual representation of the emotions and experiences that Lauren’s expressing lyrically on the album.
Lauren was really supportive of the art direction and was fantastic to work with! She took direction well and managed some challenging poses like a pro! We must also thank Kristen Wyborn for doing such a great job with the hair and makeup.
This album cover shot was a very ambitious 5 light setup that needed to be nailed and balanced throughout. From the window light cast across the back wall (all done in-studio), to controlling the spill from the kicker flash placed in the suitcase, this is a shot that we’re really proud of here at Bignote. Most importantly, the client is beside herself with the shots, so check out Lauren’s music HERE and support this chicky’s music once ‘In my head’ is released!
