On Jan 21st I had a birthday party at my loft with a bunch of great friends and a great band named Illinois. You can watch the full performance below in full HD though you will see its a little on the shaky side. Keep in mind we were filming this for fun and learned quite a bit for doing this the next time.
During the concert you can see me running around on and off stage capturing images. I did not plan on taking pictures but as soon as the band started to set up their gear I knew I had to grab my camera. There was something that went off in my head that said you have to shoot this. I love when that happens, everything else leaves my mind and I get into image making mode. I start to see things that draw my attention that I know I need to capture.

It just felt right to capture the images in my loft. It felt like this is my place, my set up and I could do and capture whatever I wanted. As you will see in the images below, I captured a ton of angles with a bunch of lenses in black and white and color. I walk you through a large number of images from keepers to ones with slight corrections could turn into keeps.
