FeelGood benefit pre-show at Metronome

The FeelGood team is at it again, this time with a show at Metronome in Burlington. Local bands and DJs like Fridge and the Spin$ and Slow Loris kept it energetic for the rain-soaked crowd.

Photog note: Still experimenting with high-contrast, black-and-white images with hard light. I’m trying to emulate the 70’s punk scene feel, but I don’t know how I’m doing. Any tips, please comment!

FeelGood benefit pre- pre-show at Muddy Waters

James Billman and the FeelGood team invited me to take some quick shots at their show to, as they say, “raise money to raise money so we can raise money to end hunger.” Muddy Waters was a generous host, and there were some seriously talented musicians.

Photog note: After using my friend’s cumulative 1,650 watt/seconds monolights, I was really in the dark on this assignment. However, I re-discovered the usefulness of the slaved Speedlight, especially when you are stuck with 1600 ISO on a four-year-old DSLR without the extra light. Hence the hard shadows. I was also dealing with the cooler flash bounce off of warmer wood tones and old lamps. Hence the black and white.

Moses and the Electric Company at St. Mike’s

A basement in a St. Mike’s dorm played host to Moses and the Electric Company’s jam/electric sounds on Friday, Feb. 24. I had a ton of fun messing around with my slave off-camera flash and the venue’s colorful LEDs.
