I have been working in Orlando Florida for the past 7 days and have been shooting but between work and socializing I haven’t had time to process any images. I am packing up to head to Costa Rica tomorrow and lent someone my camera so I had to dump some images so they had a memory card to work off of. This is one from last night.
I like bass players. They are often the overlooked member of most bands but are one of the key parts of any band. There isn’t enough love for the bass player so when I shoot a band I like to get the bass player. Think about some of the biggest bands in history and their great bass players, John Paul Jones, John Entwistle, Robert Trujillo, Derek Smalls (points if you know this one without looking it up), Jason Newstead, Cliff Burton, Lemmy Kilmister, Les Claypool, Geezer Butler, Adam Yauch, Sir Paul McCartney, and a whole lot more that I can’t think of right now. So going through old pictures, here is my humble tribute to the bass player.
Finally I will leave you with the greatest bass song ever written.
My final walk in WV before heading home. I mixed it up a bit and did some color and some black and white along with my usual medium format crop. You get too see my house mates for the last 4 days as well. The first image of the lantern was a challenge because the camera read the light incorrectly because of the screen behind it. So I had to underexpose the image on purpose to get the light correct on it. Real photography tip besides mashing the shutter button, light meters lie.
