Voodoo Glow Skulls (Ska is Dead Tour) @ Starland Ballroom, Sayreville, NJ – 11.15.09
November 20, 2009 | Concert Photography
Voodoo Glow Skulls were up after Deal’s Gone Bad, and talk about something completely different! VGS has always been a ska band I’ve liked. In fact, they were one of the first ska bands I listened to back in ’96. That night, they brought a lot of energy and just fast paced ska punk music!
Check out the live review of the show over at ReadJunk.com.
VGS was hard to shoot at times because they were all over the place. Plus there’s a lot of people in the band so it’s tough to pick who you’re going to concentrate. I liked taking pictures of bassist Jorge Casillas because he had a killer guitar stance. I like when bassists and guitarists stand the way he does because it makes for nice composition. Plus it just looks cool with a wide angle lens, only I wish my lens was wider. I almost wish I had longer time to shoot these guys so I could get some better shots, or just more of a variety.
For all 3 or 4 songs I was in the pit for, I used the 18-70mm f3.5-4.5 lens which provided wide shots and some closer shots. I only used the telephoto lens briefly outside the pit. I definitely want to check out VGS next time they come to town.
