And so, I was invited to photograph a newly formed State College band at one of their recent performances, and I was happy to oblige. After all…music and cameras…two of my greatest loves! But when I realized that this was completely uncharted territory for me, I got a little scared. Extremely dark bar…NEON lights…fast moving instruments…no external lighting sources for me…that all adds up to one heck of an intimidating situation. Oh…and I was also a little scared I'd trip over a cord and fall into a speaker…but that's another issue altogether.
The band is The Brew Devils and they consist of 4 musicians with many, many years of experience. And I must say…they were awesome (if I can borrow a word from my Hannah Montana lovin' little girls)! They have quite a few upcoming gigs…I encourage you to check them out. These aren't my typical blog shots, but I am pretty pleased with them despite the difficult lighting. And I now have a new found respect for concert photographers…it 'aint easy!
