I have early memories of listening to Afghan Whigs as a teen. I had the pleasure of photographing them the other weekend at Riot Fest.
I’m listening to Ron Perlman’s interview on NPR’s Fresh Air.
When you get a chance, check it out. It’s a good one.
At Riot Fest Saturday night, I photographed Taking Back Sunday. I imagine that their lighting techs/publicity folks decided not to give us nice bright light on purpose, for whatever reason. It’s pretty common, because as we walked away, the lights were bright and beautiful.
Usually, I might turn the images black and white, but I kind of liked the crappy colored lights, so I left it. There’s a shot of the bass player enveloped in light that I particularly found fun.
Tina and I shot a catalog last Sunday, and I’m still working on edits, but I figured you’d appreciate seeing some of the images that don’t reveal too much of the gowns.
The ones of our blonde model in her sweater were outtakes that I asked her to shoot. When I asked, she said, “Ooo, do you mind if I sit down?”
Of course I didn’t mind!
This is a fun watch.
