Top of the evening to you, pilgrims!
A question crossed my mind while photographing Matchbox Twenty: ” How do you photograph the whole band who are spread out with a 24-70 lens from the pit?” It’s an honest to God question, guys: how do you? You see, while you’re in the pit, you’re thinking of different variables in getting the shot like how to deal with the lighting; what the time limit is; are the muscians/performers going to be trouble in wanting to have their picture taken; what side of the stage are you going to position yourself at. To the last question though, nothing, in most instances, stops you from moving from your position to take a better shot, but sometimes one reason or the other gets in the way of logic. Anyways, here are some of the shots from the night:
Thought for the day
Ọ̀pọ̀ ló fẹ lápa láì lápá, béèyàn ò sì lápá, kò lè lápa.
In other words: Many want to make a mark without effort, but without effort, no mark can be made.
