BluesUp - Jazz and blues in a mixture

Max Schultz

BluesUp is a swedish band, started by guitar player Max Schultz . Max called me from jazzclub Fasching one night, and told me they urgently needed some portraits of the members. So I went there with two shoot thru umbrellas and some Vivitar 285hv's. I "gelled" the flash in post. I used the cheap but very good and sharp Canon 50mm 1.8 for all portraits.

Its a really great band. One of my Hammond B3 favourites, is Pierre Swärd is a member. Check his site for some nice groovy hammond.

Magnus Lindgren is a great arranger and composer as well as a brilliant solist. His website is HERE.

I used one flash back left and one front right on all portraits.
