Capturing The Mood

Steven is an amazing violinist and listening to him play is such a treat. Violin music evokes strong emotion from the listener and conveying that emotion and the artist's intensity was the goal of the shoot.  

When pre-conceptulizing how to shoot this, I thought it was important to use an elegant backdrop. I wanted a classic portrait with and without the instrument and an image with momentary reflection. I also wanted these images to have a masculine feel.
