Last week I had a nice surprise when I was asked to photograph a few bands that were scheduled to play before our town's Fourth of July fireworks show. I'm always on the lookout for something new and interesting to photograph, so to say I was excited by this opportunity is an understatement. When I first arrived, I played it safe and used a nice long zoom so that I wouldn't get in anyone's way or be too obvious, but by the end of the evening, I was all over the stage trying to catch the moments. There was so much great energy up on that bandshell, it made capturing genuine moments pretty easy. What it didn't make easy was the culling, but that's a problem I'll take any day! Enjoy!
