This was a good shoot…except. Except…I should of counted them, about 30 giant bass speakers were in the photo pit.Which means you had to pick your position and stay there…it was so crammed, your feet couldn’t point forward. Then, I might be mistaken, but there were other folks in the pit…intruders, outsiders, strangers…maybe from the meet and greet…taking photos the best they could. Which is fine, as long as they don’t mind me body slamming them when I need to crawl to another position without using my useless feet.
A very nice looking meet & greet lady seemed surprised by my elbow. It appeared the staff didn’t warn them at the meety greet.
However each band worked it as hard as they could, giving us all great shots. I noticed something with this tour, every band member and all the roadies were happy and laughing. First time I’ve seen a whole tour in great spirits. -Something right is happening from the top down.
How I photographed this: I used the three 5D Mark II bodies with the Canon 70-200 2.8, 16-35 2.8 and a 14mm 2.8 lenses.
