Incubus @ PNC

Shot Incubus tonight at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel... and had some difficulties with their lighting. Sometimes I think photographers are made to shoot the songs with the most difficult lighting setups. (Tonight we shot songs 4, 5 and 6, a departure from the usual 1, 2 and 3.) One song was entirely back-lit by a huge LCD screen behind the stage, and during another, the band was barely lit at all... On top of that, three songs isn't a lot of time, so I really couldn't shoot from more than one position like I would any other assignment. If I tried to get to another spot, I'd risk missing one or even two entire songs, and when you've only got three to shoot, well, that's a lot to miss... I did what I could, though, and these are a few of my faves... Enjoy!

A Remote Chance...

After several attempts over the past few months, I finally got a decent shot out of a home plate remote camera. The screen grab below shows the sequence of photos in PhotoMechanic...

And here is one of my failed attempts from a high school playoff game...

Obama's Visit

President Obama was in New Jersey, campaigning on behalf of reigning Governor Jon Corzine in his bid for another term. Originally, my job was to stay outside the venue (PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel) and cover the people in the overflow area, but by the time everyone had been let in, there was no one left in overflow. So I grabbed a free ticket and made my way inside with everyone else...
