Portraits: Breathe Electric

Grant Harris of Breathe Electric photographed backstage on Warped Tour, July 5, 2010 (TODD OWYOUNG)

Hanging out in the hot, hot sun on Warped Tour 2010, Chris and I met up with electro-pop wiz kid Grant Harris – AKA the brainchild of Breathe Electric – slapped a Nooka watch on him, and snapped these portraits.

Photographer’s Notes:

These shots of Grant of Breathe Electric were lit with a Profoto AcuteB head powered by a Profoto AcuteB 600R Battery Pack. We also used a pair of Nikon SB-900s bare on either side of Grant for a hint of accent lighting.

Gear Used:

For the vertical shot, we also used a silver 42″ Photoflex reflector to fill in Grant from camera left, which did a nice job at opening up shadows on his torso and providing a nice evenness to help him pop off the background.

End Notes:

Shout out to Grant and his tour manager for being super nice, as well as to the folks at Nooka for providing product. If you like Grant's watch, he's wearing a Nooka Zub Zoo in silver. The perfect watch for an electro pop wiz? I think so.

For this set with Breathe Electric, the Profoto pack and the 3-foot octabox were the perfect match to compliment the bright day and put out some beautiful light on Grant.[photoshelter-gallery g_id='G0000PUU2MUmPwbQ' g_name='Portraits-Breathe-Electic-A-Grant-Harris' f_show_slidenum='t' img_title='f' pho_credit='iptc' f_enable_embed_btn='t' f_send_to_friend_btn='t' f_topbar='t' f_bbar='t' f_show_watermark='t' fsvis='t' width='600′ height='700′ bgcolor='#000000′ crop='f' trans='xfade' tbs='2000′ f_fullscreen='f' bgtrans='f' twoup='f' f_bbarbig='f' f_show_caption='f' f_htmllinks='f' f_l='f' linkdest='c' target='_self' f_link='t' f_smooth='f' f_mtrx='t' f_ap='t' f_up='f' ]
