Notes:

With Jessie’s Girl, there is always something unique going on: from costumes changes, to vocalist swaps, to rubber lips getting tosses out to the audience, trying to figure out what to focus on is a bit of a challenge.

Luckily, unlike the other times that I’ve shot at The Canal Room, there was a fair bit of clean, white, lighting on the band.  Each time there was a vocalist swap, a new “personality” was born on stage, and it was nice to be able to properly capture each moment.

I ended up with a little over 120 shots from this show, because I was free to shoot the entire show, and as usual when that happens, I got a bit carried away.  The only downside was that I had to shoot over people’s heads a few times, and some great shots I had were nixed because of a sudden head or arm getting in the way.  Be sure to check it all out!

Equipment:

Nikon D3 w/ 24-70 2.8

Nikon D600 w/ 80-200 2.8
