I took this photo on set for the short film ‘Chords,’ and wanted to capture DanNy Jones taking a few moments to prepare for the next scene. He was very focused on his role, and I wanted to be able to capture that. What really caught my eye was the rim lighting that helped to highlight Jones in the middle of the frame but also leave room to show the number of people involved on set. There’s an incredible amount of teamwork and effort that you don’t see when you watch a movie, and this shows that really well.”
