Devour

I think all of the bigger stage, well lit shows I’ve been shooting lately have taken me a bit out of my game and have made me a tad spoiled.  I didn’t realize this fact until I went to shoot Shinedown last night at The Palladium om Worcester and was challenged beyond belief by the lights.

Shinedown

I suppose it didn’t help that the entire first song was one big strobe light…and the next two songs the band was pretty much in the dark save for a few spot lights from behind and then those pesky strobes again.

I’m sure for the audience it was a cool ass light show, I however did not enjoy them as much.  Oh well, you win some, you lose some.  This reminded me of one thing, don’t forget your roots….I need to shoot more club shows to keep myself primed and ready for challenging shows like this.

On a sidenote, the band sounded AMAZING!  Theory of a Deadman opened for them and they were great as well.  The club was packed and it was a hot sweaty mess.  Gotta love it.

July/August 2008 Issue of Rocknation

The July/August issue of Rocknation is now available.  It’s now available in 46 states!  Just look for it in your local music based businesses (record stores, music clubs, etc!)

In this issue, I interviewed members of Finger Eleven and Seether (if I interview one more member of Seether I feel like I should be crowned an honorary member!) as well as assisted on interviews with Puddle of Mudd and Shinedown.  It’s a great issue with lots of amazing interviews.  Unfortunately I don’t think any of my photos made this issue but hopefully the next one will!  (I’ve got some great Iron Maiden shots just waiting!!)
