John Lee Hooker & Carlos Santana by Richard E. Aaron

ohn Lee Hooker and Carlos Santana. This was shot in my studio, I was hired by the record label, this is when John Lee was doing the Healer album. He was doing sessions with different artists and they hired me to do a publicity shot of Carlos and John Lee together, and they came to my studio and they said by the way can we bring in our instruments and maybe do a couple of numbers for you, I said yeah, this is great. So they actually played for me for a couple of hours, I guess three hours or four, while I’m photographing, and what I like about this shot is, I like to use a limited amount of studio lights, this is just one light. I didn’t use a strobe light I used a quartz light, this is shot with a 750 quartz light. It give that great feeling and I shot both color and black and white of everything that I shoot and I’m more leaning to the side of black and white artistic wise and this is one of my shots.
