Photo Shoot and Gig Review

Puddle of Mudd from Kansas City, Missouri

Photoshoot and Concert Review for TheRustBeltChronicles.com at The Odeon in Cleveland, Ohio on March 2, 2018.

The crowd was packed in, and there was no photo pit. This can be really tough for a photographer. Luckily I had picked a spot just right of center stage and spent the first two breaks talking to those around me. That’s also one thing I love about rock shows, the ability to just talk to those around you in a friendly atmosphere. Since I did not get a front spot, the patrons were very kind and let me sneak to the front for the first three songs.

The lighting for the first couple of songs was less than desirable making it hard to get awesome photos. I worked with what I had and got some good shots.

After the show, I got a chance to meet up with Wes. He signed my media badge, and we chatted for a few minutes. He seemed very genuine and down to earth, and I wished him nothing but the best.

A combo of a six-shot burst. All the photos turned out great, so I selected to image above, but all together they show so much emotion.

I also messed around with overlaying the photos to create motion or extra exposures
