Notes: There are certain things you get used to as a music photographer who usually shoots in larger venues. You have 3 songs, you can’t use flash, you have the use of a photo pit, you can’t get side of stage… So it takes some adjustment when you’re shooting something like this. No shooting restrictions, you can shoot the whole set, you can use flash. No photo pit, so you have to fight with the crowd for every shot. No stage to get to the side of, in fact if you can find your way around the equipment you can go anywhere you like. It takes an adjustment, but it also means it’s great fun to shoot. Probably more fun than any show you need a pass for.
