So Create-a-Vibe was kind enough to allow us to shoot moe. at Vasa Park.
It was a lovely day, with plenty of sunshine and of course lots of good friends. Nothing better than hanging out side stage with the whole Mexicali crew, just talking about everything while watching a good show :)

So back on page 2 of this thread, I posted a few shots of Chloe just a few weeks after she was born.

Well this past week on the way up to New Hampshire for the 4th of July weekend, I had a second opportunity to stop in Connecticut for a few hours and photograph her again.

She was fun to work with. Got to see her happy, annoyed, sleeping, happy again, really a full range of emotions :)
.
btw if anyone is interested, I'm trying to push more into children's photography, so if you're in the NYC area (or nearby) perhaps we can work something out :)

Alright just finished up a good amount of shots from Camp Bisco.
.
We definitely had a good time and heard a ton of good music. I think however the mud got us down a bit and I definitely got worn out by the end. Just wrote this on the main board but I'd have to say a personal highlight was talking to Dr. Dog and K'naan. Carla struck up a conversation with one of the guys from Dr. Dog as we were waiting at the gates, apparently they were having problems getting clearance to bring their dog in :lol:
Then later after the Dr. Dog set, K'naan came over to talk to them and give them a few cds and I was able to get them to pose for a shot.
Posted Image
.
K'naan is from Somalia and raps about it in a few of his songs. I have a friend who was involved with the U.S. Forces sent there to try and deal with the warlords so I asked K'naan for his view on it and we talked for a little bit about it...

Lets see so I got my first photo pass for the vibes this year and took over 1200 shots and will probably be going through these for quite awhile. Festivals can be a bit exhausting as you spend most of your time on the go trying to run from stage to stage and catch the first three songs of each act, while keeping an eye out for good crowd shots and bikini hula hooping girls ;)
Anyways it was a lot of fun and I got to see a lot of good music close up, including Crosby, Stills, and Nash, that I never would have otherwise. Hope you enjoy the shots.

Great band shots Jeremy, very professional. I'd love to see oogles more of the crowd from your perspective. I'm always more interested in crowd shots, seeing the people and what they are up to, dancing, mudding, glowsticking, smiling, smiling, smiling, and so on.

Maybe you'd like turn your mad photog skills around and capture the crowd, the energy more often in the future, as well as the bands.

actually this year at Vibes, I easily took more individual shots of attendees than I had at Camp Bisco or Mountain Jam. But you're right I need more of the screaming crowd shots from the first row. Sometimes its a bit tough, when you're limited to shooting three songs in the pit.
.
anyway thanks for looking :)

Some shots from Phish at Hartford.
The rules have been changed a little for shooting Phish, before it was three songs, now its three songs or 15 minutes, so it makes it all tighter. On the other hand, Hartford had a generous pit and the band was much closer than at Jones Beach which was great. We also had seats about 15th row center, which helped for getting a few shots from the crowd. Again we were told not to take any shots of concertgoers which was a bit of a bummer and my framing and focusing was off on a ton of shots (I may have taken around 500 total), but still all and all I'm generally happy with how these came out.

Lets see saw a couple of shows the past few days.
First off, I got to see Buzzuniverse at Brooklyn Bowl for the first time. A lovely place and a pretty cool venue. Its basically one large room divided in half with bowling on one side and a music venue on the other with large screens all around. Also everything is finished in rough dark wood and the couches are all black (p)leather giving it a very nice feel.

I also had the opportunity to see the Chris Berry Trio w/ Kimock and Kang at Mexicali on Saturday night. Nice size crowd and really nice music moving from African/Caribbean to a bit of techno (from another Kang project, Panjea?)
.
Posted Image
Posted Image
.
After the show I was able to get a photograph signed by Steve Kimock, from a show he played with Mickey Hart at Irving Plaza last year.
I also gave him a copy of this shot
Posted Image
which he loved.
The funny thing is I just posted it to facebook and George Porter is loving it, too!
http://www.facebook....omments=&alert=
.
Also looks like I'll be shooting at Mercury Lounge on Saturday to see Lotus so that should be lots of fun and lastly if anyone is interested, I've entered a couple of my photos in a contest with Billboard Magazine and I'd be grateful if anyone could spare a moment and vote for one of my shots.

Lotus kicked off their latest tour at the Mercury Lounge this past weekend. We went on Saturday night to the sold out venue and had a great time, even if we did have to take a break by the bar and cool off once or twice.

I stayed with the prime lenses for most of the evening but was able to go to the Tokina 11-16 2.8 once or twice, including the first shot below, the band had some great strobes going, too and that really helped to make the shot.

Well I saw a shot like this one and really wanted to use it.
Posted Image
.
a few other people use the Nikon 10.5 fisheye lens (Dave Vann for one, this guy for another)
http://www.flickr.co...pool-738505@N23
but that one is a bit more expensive and you're pretty much stuck with the same shot again and again, not that it can't be spectacular, but with either lens you have to get really, really close up, otherwise you're subject is going to be super tiny.

The other thing is, its a 2.8 lens, so places like say Mexicali, or Sullivan Hall, or Mercury Lounge, which have a ncie tight stage that you can get right up on top of, don't always have the brightest lights and when they do, they use them more as accents and you've got to be lucky, so I'll bring the Tokina, but it does sit in the bag a ton.
But that's almost exactly what happened on Saturday night :)

I had an interesting time last last Wednesday. Started off at at a Relix party to celebrate the release of their October issue. Free PBR Tallboys and an acoustic set by Charlie Mars and attended by his girlfriend Mary-Louise Parker whom I must have walked by half a dozen times and only noticed her little daughter and not her :rolleyes:
From there I ran over to Brooklyn Bowl to catch the Govt. Mule cd release party. The place was maybe 3/4 full so there was plenty of places to move around and get some good shots. Plus the lights were really bright for most of the show and so I was able to switch back and forth from the primes to the zooms.

So back to Brooklyn Bowl on Sunday for the Disco Biscuits
.
The show started a bit later than we hoped for, plus there was a "rumor" the 600 person venue had sold around 800 tickets, due to a mistake, so the place was packed to the gills. Definitely a solid first set, but I think more than a few people ran out of gas by the end of the night. Shooting wise, probably not my best effort, but here goes.

In the funny things department. The owner of Brooklyn Bowl, Peter Shapiro was standing next to me at one point yelling at Marc Brownstein for his attention. Marc, then walked over and mugged for his camera and I took one, too. Long story short, I send it to my friend, who sends it to Pete, who sends it to Brownie and now its his avatar on facebook.

So Saturday night was a wee bit busy in NYC. I was asked at the last minute to help out a reviewer with a shoot from RRE and YMSB at the Nokia in Times Square. But of course the list is closed and so I had to be put on as a +1, which would have been fine, but the reviewer was late getting there and of course, there was no +1 errrr. So I snagged a few shots from the crowd of RRE, walked around and talekd to a few people and then waited for YMSB. Luckily the lighting was great for them and there was only 2 other people in the pit, making it easy to move around. These are all shot at 1600iso and 1/250 2.8. In retrospect, I probably could have undershot them a bit more and gotten more detail but oh well.

Also during the evening of highs (some good shots) and lows (super frustration of waiting outside for 45 mins and not having a ticket waiting)
I got a fantastic email from the editor of Relix. So fingers crossed :v: and we'll see where that leads....

So on Wednesday I had the opportunity to shoot Blues Traveler at Irving Plaza. Honestly it was my first time seeing them since they opened for the Rolling Stones on the Bridges to Babylon Tour. Decent show and a nice crowd (especially considering Game 6 of the World Series going on)
For highlights they played Sublime's, "What I've Got", Cheap Trick's "I Want You to Want Me" and their own Hook, The Mountains Win Again, But Anyway, and of course Run-Around.
The lighting on the band was excellent, although there was always more on John Popper, so I had to adjust while shooting during the concert and in photoshop later on. Probably the highlight for me, was having a photo pit at Irving Plaza for the first time and we got 6 songs before I got the boot! Oh my god, it was fantastic, now if only the Bowery does one two, I'll be in Heaven.
Settings ranged from 1/250 up to 1/400 of a second with an ISO between 1000-1600.

btw has anyone ever heard of Falu? She sat in with the band as well. She's an traditional Indian singer, I've never heard of her, but she's got photos on her myspace page with DJ Logic, George Porter, Bernie Worrell, Adam Deitch, and Widespread Panic.
So she's obviously on the edge of the scene...

So I got the opportunity to shoot the Monsters of Folk on Sunday at the Beacon Theatre. It was my first time shooting there and I didn't quite know what to expect. Well I get there and am told that we are only allowed to stand against the far walls and shoot from there :shocked:
Luckily this gets amended to being allowed to shoot at the front of the rows, but to kneel only (so as to not to block anyone's view) Three songs only (so maybe 9 minutes total), its mostly dark, and as anyone knows at the Beacon, the band sets up pretty far back on the stage.
So definitely not the easiest shoot, seems like everyone had a tough shoot at the Beacon and United Palace Theatre (on Friday night)

then I was able to move up to the 2nd row of the Lodge (bought these tickets) and shoot the rest of the night from up there and get these three images.

The shots should be posted on www.thewaster.com shortly with a review from the United Palace Theatre
and on a new site for me, http://consequenceof...nsters-of-folk/
.
also I am heading out to Las Vegas with Carla for the next few days. I'm hoping to get some great shots of either the parks surrounding Las Vegas or maybe a nearby ghost town....

So we went to Las Vegas last week and had a lovely time and for these we had a beautiful day to shoot.
Its become a bit of a tradition with myself and my sister to meet up around Thanksgiving or so and spend the day
walking and talking and shooting....
.
Here's a couple of shots we took out in the desert of Eldorado Canyon at the old Techatticup Mining Camp
We ended up getting pretty lucky on the weather, we drove through a dust storm on the way out there, but it cleared up
and we got a real nice desert sky to work with.
These are one shot HDRs, they come out pretty decently as long as you keep the ISO low (200 or 250) and don't shoot directly into the sun.

Ok so we went to Grace Potter at Terminal 5 on Friday night and had an excellent time. The place was full, but not too packed, so although the sightlines were terrible, I was able to move around and get a few good angles.
.
Brett Dennen opened (although I still don't understand his appeal)

.
The first song for Grace, was lit well, then the next one, not so much and for the last one she went to the organ, which is always a tough place to find an angle.
these were mostly at 1/250 (sometimes I was able to go a bit faster) 2.8 ISO 1600

So I'm pretty excited, I'm going to be interning for fashion photographer.
He's from LA, his name is Vikram Pathak http://www.vikrampathak.com/
we met on Saturday for a bit and went over my portfolio and some of the work he does and I'll be helping him out
from time to time and hopefully really learning. I've even got some homework to do :lol:

Thanks Roo, good seeing you the other night :)
.
Lets see,I just finished up some shots of Lotus at Terminal 5 from this past Saturday.
Excellent show with about 1,800 in attendance and a very nice Spiritualize > It's All Clear > Space Oddity > It's All Clear > Spiritualize in the middle of the show.
.
Settings here for the most part are 1600iso, 1/250, & 2.8
The lighting was ok, unfortunately I was getting a ton of flare in my shots and missed some nice angles...

I also managed to talk to Mike Remple for a moment afterward, I mentioned how I enjoyed his guitar playing and he motioned to Rick Lowenberg (Brothers Past drummer), who was standing next to him and said heck this guy is a much better guitarist than me :lol:

Yeah its pretty damn cool to personally watch them grow from
Williamsburg to Terminal 5

and get on the cover of Billboard Magazine. In fact they seem to be one of the few jambands that are growing to that degree

Ha yeah I watched them grow from 5 of us at the Brass Lantern to 15000 at Rothbury. Unreal. You are right that they seem to be one of the only jamtronica/jambands that seem to be growing. Nicest guys on the scene taboot

So I had the opportunity to take a few shots of U-Melt last Friday. As most people knew in attendance, it would be Rob's last show for a while. So I got a chance to get there during soundcheck to take a few extra shots and hopefully get something good. I think the first one was exactly what I was hoping for.
