Usually at shows I get to be in the photo pit for the first three songs, then have to move back and shoot elsewhere. However, when shooting small shows with lax rules, I’ve learned a trick. About five songs in, when I guess the guitar solo is coming, I’ll quickly go to the front, and without fail the musicians suddenly amp it up, going from the photo above, to this:

Ft. Collin’s Aspen Hourglass played The 1Up Colfax last night, and I loved that the drums were not only on the side, but they had a spotlight on him! I always try to get great shots of everyone, and usually the drummer gets the dark, fuzzy end of the stick. Not last night, you can even see him smile.
