The Purple Valley has a curse. Every time they have had their photo taken, they have had somebody leave the band. Immediately after this photo was taken the drummer said that this was the last time he was going to play with the band. Then he smiled and laughed. One advantage for me, is that they might ask me to take another photo when/if a new member joins them. ;-)
- I haven't taken a lot of photos of people where I have had to pose the people. Fortunately they had some idea on what they wanted to try. They set up, and I made a few suggestions. I then began take several photographs of them as they joked with each other. I think this worked best because they became more relaxed, and looked more natural.
