The Alive Festival has been absolutely incredible and the music has just been off the hook! I didn't do a ton of shooting but there were a couple of bands who I just couldn't help shooting!
The first is Stellar Kart and I have to claim them because their first appearance at the Alive Festival was in the video I made for Thirst Relief which you can see on my MySpace page. These guys just get it and I know they are gonna be a huge success for one reason - the way they treat their fans. Several times during their set the lead singer came down off the stage and interacted with them and the response was amazing. Then they stood outside of their secure eating area and let fans come up and chat with them and get autographs instead of hiding and trying to shy away from them.
Then FlyLeaf came on and - WOW! I'm not usually a hard rock guy but I LOVED them and the song is the slideshow is one of their mellow songs but you've gotta check'em out!
The last band I shot was Jeremy Camp - he's just a stud and their little light show made it super fun to shoot.
All these shots are straight out of camera - no corrections or cropping and I was really stoked with how the Mark 3 handled the crazy lighting conditions and last week I found a secret feature on the Mark 3 that nobody knows about and it's unreal!!! I can't believe Canon didn't tell us about it. I will tell you guys about it next week. ;)
Barlowgirl was playing today but I had to leave :( ....they are gonna rock as always.
