Notes:

Shooting the Dropkick Murphys was a fun with a bit of a challenge; for whatever reason, they had the press photographers (myself included) shoot not the 1st song – but the 2nd, 3rd and 4th.  Not a big deal, but a little different.  If there were a lot of photographers (there were 3 others this night I think) it may have been an issue, but it really wasn’t.  Then, with the quick songs, I only had about 8 minutes total to shoot – so I had to shoot hard and fast.  I ended up missing getting a solo shot of bagpipe player Josh Wallace because he was so far in the back with no much light on him.

I usually hate green light as well – but for an Irish band like Dropkick Murphys – it works so well.  And the light for them for the 3rd (4th) song was very green.

Also, if you were on the stage during Kiss Me I’m Shitfaced for this show, and you don’t see a shot of yourself here, leave a message in the comments below, and let me know what you look like, and I’ll see if I have a shot of you saved.  I tried to shoot as many ladies on the stage as possible, and hopefully I got them all!

Equipment:

Nikon D3 w/ 24-70 2.8
Nikon D600 w/ 80-200 2.8
