Wordless Wednesday - Concert Color/Blur

Back in 1999 I was living in Orlando. I had taken a photojournalism class while working on my degree in Advertising/Public Relations, and that had lead to my doing some work as a freelance photographer. (You may recall my water main shot I previously posted). I started working with some local bands, one of which was Von Ra. I got to know them well, even travelling with them to Atlanta and Nashville to shoot them in label-seeking showcases. They eventually went national, but never got the radioplay needed to thrive. The biggest accomplishments were touring with Creed and having a single on the Smallville (TV) Soundtrack.

In these shots, I was experimenting with low-light and concert-lighting. The results included some cool blur effects, especially if you look at the amp in the second shot, check the lights.

I think you would be interested in my newphew's pictures Preston. He tried the same type of experiments.

Link is in on my blog if you are interested.

Cool shots, love the blur effect. I was playing with that effect one night. I'll have to try and post some of those pics soon.

Happy WW!

You are correct. WE have gone to Good and Plenty and Plain and Fancy many times.

Went to the Oregon Dairy and Chimney Corner and Green Dragon!

Love the area. Sister lives in Lititz.

Thanks for visiting!
