MAKERS MOMENT: The Photography of Love and a .38’s Justin Emord

by Daniel Corey

Greetings, DangerKatts! I hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy out there!

Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of interviewing Justin Emord, bassist for L.A.-based rock band Love and a .38. In addition to being an amazing musician, Justin is also a very talented photographer. I asked him to share a MAKERS Moment exclusively for DangerKatt Central, and he has come through for us!

Here’s what Justin had to say about his photo:

This photo was taken out in the hills above the Getty Museum by the Sepulveda Pass. After going to Joshua Tree earlier in the summer, my phone had a warrior’s death so when I upgraded, having a quality camera built in was important. Sure enough, my new phone (Galaxy S10) had an extra wide angle lens built in and has basically become my new favorite toy when shooting. Being that landscapes and cityscapes are my preferred subject, having this extra wide angle has breathed new life into my framing and compositions. In this shot in particular, being able to capture the full width of this solitary tree as the sun was starting to go down between its branches added an extra level of drama to the image.

And a dramatic and beautiful image it is, Justin! Thank you for sharing your MAKERS Moment with us!
