I’ve struck up a bit of a friendship with Patrick Devlin over the years so I should not have been surprised when he started asking the audience if they would mind if Jay Lee came up and took a picture of them …
I’ve always loved shooting from the stage. It’s a unique perspective on concert photography and I was happy to oblige.
Staring into the face of a Blaggards live audience is a most interesting experience….
Of course while I was up there I took the opportunity to shoot the band
Keep in mind that the lighting in a night club is intended to illuminate the performers on stage for the audience. When you shoot from the stage you are shooting into the lights and into a dark room for the most part.
