Hilary Wallace, Art Director for Native Peoples Magazine wanted an interesting environmental portrait of the Native American blues-rock band Indigenous. The band was playing a gig at The Cajun House in Scottsdale, which looks like an outdoor street, but it's really inside.

We also shot some portraits of their guitarist Mato Nanji after the group shot.

Lighting: (6) Dynalite strobes

Hasselblad 60mm lens.
Exposure: 1/2 sec. @ f/11 (a longer exposure was needed to expose for the tungsten lights in the background).
Film: Fuji RDP 100
