Awkward crop of one of my photos from last nights #deadlettercircus and #Karnivool gig in #Brisbane kind of using this to make a point. I didn’t use flash for this. I don’t use flash for any of my live music photography. Not only is it usually against the rules, it’s sheer fucking laziness. It’s also rude. HUGE distraction to the other photographers, the paying punters, and most importantly- looks shit. The point of live music photography is to make the person viewing the photos feel as though they were there by seeing the captured image. Flash doesn’t allow that. It’s unrealistic. That said- there are occasions where the band asks for flash to be used, or the promoter does. #rantover. #lazyphotographerspissmeoff
