“Zachasthemonster #1″

Canon 5D Mark II f2.8 70-200mm zoom f2.8@1/3000th ISO 800 Zach Mcintosh in Johnson Square, Savannah, Ga.

An abstract shot of Zach Mcintosh (better known in Savannah music circles as Zachasthemonster). Big talent all the way around…. amazing singer, songwriter, and rhythm guitar player. Zach has a show at Lulu’s Chocolate Bar in October.

    Hey Craig, like others have said, it’s great to see you back and posting. All three of the images you posted the last couple of days are great, but I especially like this one. The highlights on the guitar really make this image for me. They take it beyond the typical silhouette and help integrate the subject with the bokeh. I also am drawn to the slight sense of motion in the right arm. Really cool image.

    Hey Steve,

    Thank you for the kind words about this image. Greatly appreciated. Big thank you to my friend Zach for his great music and for allowing me to photograph him …Craig

    I am immediately drawn to the small details of the in-focus guitar and the wisp of his hair and then to the full silhouette of Zach and, finally, to the great background of the light through the fountain. Everything just fits into place. A really beautiful composition, Craig.

    Hey Wes,

    Thank you for the very kind words about this shot….its a big departure from the original capture which was not even close to silhouhette…. Craig

    Very cool shaping of the light around the background. The hint of guitar reflection makes it all make sense.

  • Craig says:

    Hey Gordon,

    Thank you for stopping by. Hope this finds you and Amanda doing very well!….Craig

    “In an image, lighter areas seem to come forward while darker areas seem to retreat.” I first heard this in Savannah back in 2007!!!

    And this is exactly what happened when I first saw this image! My eyes and brain got hooked on the large bright area to the left, so it came forward and reminded me of a Phantom of the Opera type mask.

    THEN I saw the guy’s silhouette! The highlights on his guitar are the brilliant “finishing touches” to the image and really lift this waaaay up and beyond!
