  • America In Concert...

    Had the chance to shoot the band America at Humphrey's last night.

    They put on a great show, and played for a long time. Every song you'd expect to be played was.

    I was permitted to shoot from anywhere in the house I wanted, with the understanding that I could shoot at the stage only during the second and third songs. I had free reign for the rest of the show, though.

    Some of these are taken from right in front of the stage, some are taken from our seats (13th row), and some from the soundboard.

    I took about 700 shots, and the keeper rate is running about 50%, so I'm happy. Then again, my criteria for a "keeper" is pretty stringent, as I'm crazy critical of my own stuff. In actuality, it would probably be closer to 70%.

    Enjoy:

    Very nice, I like the black backgrounds.

    Did you shoot these for someone?

            They look like they are having fun! It's neat that they are still around and touring.



            W&S is Taylor's in-house, correct?
            See my user profile for gear information. Then forget about that stuff and go take pictures! And then some more pictures!
