If the headstock was more prominent in #4, that could be a magazine ad.

gorgeous tone on it.

As usual, a very nice set. My favs are the close ups... With #3 and #6 leading the way... #4 helps gel, and round out this set nicely...

Thanks, John, I try to give that 300mm f/2.8 a workout at every concert. Last night I shot Montgomery Gentry and I don't think I got a single frame with it that is publishable ... sometimes nothing works.

Thanks, Richard. I know these are a bit staid. Yup, LightRoom selenium preset with some contrast adjustments afterwards.

Uh... Dwight don't say that... That's a fright, if I've ever heard one...
Looking forward to your set, regardless... It's probably just you, being too critical of yourself.

OK Chris... most of us are clueless...what are you referring to?

Some other picture from a previous shoot? Maybe one of yours? Got a sample?

Dwight,

I love how your photo sets start with a wide stage then the closeups. You must do a lot of running around especially if you're constrained by the first three song rule. I assume you secure your location for the closeups first and then take the wide shots on your way out?

I posted the same shot quite a few times, it is a "favorite shot" I do when I shoot guitarist...which is pretty rare anymore as the brides and commercial clients pay a heck of alot more!;) I did a quick search and even though the images are not there the text describing the shot is. It was Becca D back in April of '06. Good grief though my early collage work was horrible! LOL!

I love the shot, and I love to see Dwight doing more artistic stuff.

Something like that. I "secure my location" by going wherever I please within the constraints set by the talent as I am the "House Photographer" at the casino. I also convey the restrictions to any media togs, most of whom I know, and could limit them, but that's not my way. I usually point out all my best spots to any new people and tell them they can follow me around or shoot as they please but don't break the rules. So, it is different for each performance. I will be going through a typical concert and how I shoot them on my blog after I finish reviewing my equipment. I will also talk about shooting boxing and MMA as well as mixing in some studio shooting discussions. So, back to your original comment, yes, I tend to shoot for a minute, move, shoot for a minute, move, shoot, move, etc. Everyone is seated and the floor are carpeted ... since I shoot with two bodies, I generally just put one on the floor and shoot with the other. Fun, fun, fun.
