Enjoying Your Job
The Los Angeles Clippers pro basketball club has a dance team and cheerleaders. But they also have a drum troupe to help entertain their fans during timeouts. As a former school boy drummer and a fan of anything that makes noise, I wanted to capture the essence of playing a percussion instrument. The guy in the middle is the star of the group because there's no doubt how much he loves drumming and competing against his band mates. I used software that mimics the results of what's called a tilt-shift lens to home in on the faces of the drummers while putting everything else into a soft focus.
