Default Portrait - Piano in a field?

I just did a recent shoot where a local pianist wanted to do a shoot with a piano on location at a park. He wanted it done in a field or some rustic setting. I have to admit I've never done anything like this before but it seemed like it would be fun. Moving a piano is not easy on uneven ground and getting it into the field was interesting to say the least. The piano logistics were not my problem, I just had to worry about the shot plan. It's was a fun shoot and I think we captured the look he was after. Here's a link to the images on our FB page.

My favorite of the group.

@aussie3d - Thanks, it was definitely a fun shoot. If you think about it, getting paid to do something you like to do is always fun but this allowed me more on the scene creativity than normal.

That's a beautiful shot. I love the way the sun is glaring off of the wood and the keys.

Agreed with the others... I think it's a tad too yellow for me personally, but in saying that it really does capture everything nicely, including the mood--sort of calming classics sort of stuff.

@Matt - Thanks, yes it is yellow which is due to the sun setting. If you look at the images on my FB page you can see a few other that are just nice soft light. He really wanted a sunset/field image and I enjoy the challenge of shooting into the sun. You can really get some great effects that way.

I like it. I'd hate to be dragging that piano around.
