Bad Manners @ Webster Hall, NYC – 8.21.10
August 27, 2010 | Concert Photography
Bad Manners opened up for English Beat again and I was just stoked to see them again (both bands really). The last time I saw Bad Manners perform at Irving Plaza, it was just incredible. The same can be said again! Buster Bloodvessel is a photographer’s dream!
I already did a full review of the show so head over to ReadJunk.com to read it.
I was contemplating trying to fit in the tiny size pit in front of the stage but realized I couldn’t fit in there. So I just stayed put and watched the show next to my fiancee. That spot was perfect for getting shots of Buster Bloodvessel, who was again in fine form. I wanted to get other shots of the other members but it was hard because of distance or mics in the way. Plus once you see how Buster acts on stage, you don’t want to shoot anyone else. The facial examples he does and when he sticks out his infamous tongue is photography gold!
I switched between the 3 lenses I had in my bag, the wide angle 18-70mm f3.5-4.5, 50mm f1.4, and the 70-200mm f2.8. The 70-200mm f2.8 was good to use to get shots of the other members and extreme close-ups of Buster. The 50mm f2.4 worked out to be the best lens of the night for me. It was just the right distance to the band and provided the best shots I felt.
