Ok, I do not lie…as I mentioned previously, I am back to tell everything about the Noise for the Needy Festival shows I shot this past weekend!
I shot 2 shows: The Funhouse on Friday the 13th(spooky! lol) and King Cobra’s early show on Saturday…super fun!
The lines ups for the shows were as follows:
King Cobra ~ Featuring Fourthcity DJ’s http://fourthcity.net/ – www.myspace.com/fourthcity
DJ Zapan www.myspace.com/zapan
DJ Same DNA www.myspace.com/djsamedna
DJ Absolute Madman www.myspace.com/absolutemadman
Specs One www.myspace.com/specsone
Delicious People www.myspace.com/deliciouspeeps
Both fun shows…the first at the Funhouse, a hardcore rock line up…the second, a kind of mellow chill hip hop bit with DJ spinners, etc…
As well, both shows were just a few in the line up of the Noise for the Needy ~ Festival 2008, www.noisefortheneedy.org. This year, the NFTN festival sponsored the charity: Urban Rest Stop ~ www.urbanreststop.org.
It felt great to contribute in some way…my way is to give images to them(NFTN) and the artists. I had a great time…it was great practice and I got to meet some great people. My good deed for the year(I kid…)…
I actually rented 2 lenses ~ a 24mm f1.4L(test drive), a 50mm f1.2L(dreaming), and used my own 100mm f2.0. I had a flash in my bag, but I am both not a huge fan of flash in show photography, and I honestly don’t know how to properly use it in such a setting…so it was more a if I absolutely need it back up. I was pleased with the images I composed and captured with out…
Here are a smattering of my favorites from the two nights!
I love music…it is a beautiful thing!
