It has been a while since I have posted photos, but it is good to be back. I have been lurking a little, working a lot, and staying very busy, but I felt I had to share these.

I was one of four official photographers working for PAXAHAU ( http://www.paxahau.com (external link) ) who was promoting Movement:Detroit's Electronic Music Festival
. Along with three full days of the actual festival during Memorial day weekend in Hart Plaza, Downtown Detroit, I also attended many of the official after parties and other events. The music festival had over 170 artists/ msuicians, 5 stages, 75,000 people, and three days of temperatures in the 90's

All 761 photos from the Movement: DEMF weekend are now online. :D

CLICK HERE (external link) to visit my website to see all 761 the photos, built with EE, thanks Pekka

Here are 15 photos, broken down into three days, that I really liked, it was hard to pick, but here I go.


PLEASE FEEL FREE TO COMMENT, CRITIQUE, COMPLIMENT, RIP APART- EVERYTHING IS WELCOMED AND APPRECIATED

All EXIF data is still attached, and if you would like to know any more about a specific shot or technique, go ahead and ask. SATURDAY

#2, 6 and the last four are very nice. I like #14 best I think....
On #2 you could try channel mixer or this action (external link) allthough it doesn't works out too bad this way.

Not a single natural color or skin tone! SUPERB! I will look at the whole gallery later (I'm are work) but looks like another grand coup for you! I like 3, 7 , 12, 13 and 15 ... I will try to remember to shoot wide angle (I never do any more) from close to the stage and up into the lighting trusses at my next gig at the casino which is Christian Castro on June 29th.

The lack of comments is a bit puzzling but in general (with exceptions) I notice that DJ events get less attention and that events that including many bands rather than one get less attention. Also, in your case, I think that the length of the event is a factor. Your work is great, of a somewhat different style, and I suspect that we have all taught each other so much that we are much busier shooting and spending less time on the boards these days ... that is a good thing! :-)

Thanks Dwight,

I am shooting a College graduation party this weekend, maybe those photo will get more attention . "college graduations" are usually not my thing, but this is no normal college graduation party. They are doing a Red Carpet entrance walk area, valet, black tie optional dress code, .... so lets just say it will be a good time .
