Composure

this one random shot is from when i saw August Burns Red in october 2009 at El Corazon. i've held off uploading these shots seeing as i took them with a cell phone, but i finally caved. i love this picture. this was God having pity on a photographer that didn't have a real camera. thank you Jesus.

this was easily one of the most epic shows i've ever been to. this was also the first time i had ever been in the pit of a metal show. there is no describing the sensation of dozens of blood-thirsty fans crowded around you, 808 drum beats dropped so heavy it throws your equilibrium off, lights flashing in undetermined patterns that not only threaten the integrity of your shot but also the strength of your retinas, being close enough to the band to feel the sweat flung from guitar strings as you dodge the feet of a crowd surfer...

 

i love live shows.
