Insonnia

Blackstock Vineyards
Barbara and I met with Insonnia (Curtis Jones - guitar & mandolin, Pete Orenstein - keyboards and Mark Leitalian - percussion) at Blackstock Vineyards in Dahlonega, Georgia to shoot some promotional images for the band. Insonnia is releasing a new album soon, their sound is so unique and Curtis, Pete and Mark are such powerful musicians. I encourage everyone to listen to their beautiful music - they're incredibly talented.

I shot these images with my Nikon D3x, a variety of lenses, and Elinchrom Ranger RX powered heads and two Mola (Euro and Demi) beauty dishes and a shoot through Elinchrom umbrella. It was a cold day and the guys were freezing during the shoot. Ambient temperature was 31 degrees and the wind was blowing at about 15 knots making it feel much, much colder.

Curtis, Pete and Mark were real troopers and we got some great shots against the dusk sky adjacent to the vines. In several of the images you can see smoke from a forest fire burning on the side of one of the mountains; the sun had set and night was upon as we packed our equipment and the flames from the fire could be seen prominently in the distance. We wish that any damage from the fire was minimal and the local crews were able to get it under control quickly even in the high winds.

Interested in the music of Insonnia? Please check out their website/blog to see what they're up to and where they're playing next.
