The international acclaimed Steinway pianist/composer Kevin Kern has recently released his latest CD "Imagination's Light", and the CD cover photo was taken by Kurty Photography at the recording studio in Berkeley.
I still remember how challenging it was to set my studio lighting - a black Steinway piano against a pitch black background with Kevin in his black Armani suit. The result was a dramatic, low key yet magical and powerful image with just minimal streaks of light to define the shapes. The spot light on Kevin was the key to the CD's theme - Imagination's Light.
The CD immediately soared to number 4 in the Billboard's top chart, and it's got great reviews.
Kevin is currently on tour in Asia, and I will post his upcoming U.S. tour dates here when I find out.
