Rude Boy George @ Oskar Schindler Performing Arts Center, West Orange, NJ – 8.19.17
August 20, 2017 | Concert Photography
It’s always fun to see Rude Boy George! As you can tell, I shoot them a lot but that’s because they are fun to shoot and they are also my friends. It was great to see them not in a club setting for a change and it was a gorgeous night too!
I had my kid with me for this, so I didn’t get to shoot as much as I usually do but I let my twin brother Matt take some shots and later on my wife snapped a couple as well. My brother got a good shot of Roger doing the “rock on” devil horns.
Since the band urged people to stand and dance, I didn’t feel as bad of getting up close to them to get some shots. I even went on the side of the stage at one point since some of the band members were hiding in the back. I used my 70-200mm f2.8 lens for the most part, but took out the other lens to get some wider shots as well.
If I didn’t have my family with me, I would have tried to bring my tripod and try to get some stars in the skies with the stage but I was lucky I made it this far in the set. My son loved the music, and loves dancing. He’s been dancing at a very earlier age, especially to ska and reggae music. He was cranky as hell all afternoon but once we got to West Orange, he had a big smile on his face. Since RBG’s set was around bedtime, we had to cut out a little early.
