I went out last Saturday night to listen and watch some friends (musicians) perform. I quickly found someone who used to own a live music venue here in town. Her first question or statement to me was, “no camera?”
I am not really back to the feeling or the need to shoot pictures every time I go out to listen to live music. But that being said, the pictures I have always loved taking the most are the ones where someone is being their-self. They are not posing for the camera – they are instead caught in the moment. This one I caught of Sarah McLaughlin at Lilith fair in Indy a few years back shows exactly what I am talking about.
That moment. Nothing staged. It is just a moment caught in time.
