I Front the Band

I Front the Band

Nothing beats a lead singer in a band.  Haven’t met one yet that doesn’t have an ego and wanting to be at the center of attention at some point.  The music industry calls it lead singers disease.  While I love to give singers crap, to be honest without a dynamic front person in a band, no matter how good they are talent wise, it can be a very boring show.  While this one is rather tame in comparison I may…

Drop The Bass

Drop The Bass

I have an affinity for bass players.  They are the crapped on members of almost every band ever made.  So I make it a point to shoot the bass player whenever I shoot a band.  Sadly, with lighting being what it was I could not nail the pictures with the cigarette hanging out of his mouth but this is pretty decent all thing considered at the ISO and shutter speed I was at.

Hard at Work

Life Sideways

Life Sideways

This is another from the Chicago Experience as I am now calling it.  I was coming in from doing some shopping and I saw these guys reflected in the mirror above the hotel.  So I snapped it quickly and it was an interesting image.  I recently got a legal version of DxO Film Packs 3 which you can get for free via Steve Huff’s site.  I used the Generic Fuji Velvia 100 film type and it gives the image some…
