Totally fucked up the exposure here. Had turned around to get some shots of the crowd and didn't adjust when I turned back around. :o I still like it.

what bands at warped
I honestly don't know what bands I shot there :rofl:

I'm gonna have to look at the timestamps and stages to figure it out. There was 7 different stages going at the same time :uh:

August BUrns Red, A day to Remember, Less THan Jake, Of Mice & Men, We Came as Romans, Black Veil Brides (I think) Unwritten Law, Quiet Drive (I think)

I was just wandering from stage to stage as bands were starting, getting my 3 songs in, then moving to the next one.

LOTS of wandering.

I shot a total of 3 bands at Warped on Saturday! I got pissed that I had to share the pit with 20+ chicks with point & shoot cams not doing shit. I had work to do and could not get them to move out of my way. One other guy in the pit started to shove them to get them to move. Then some ass in the crowd threw a frozen bottle of water at the stage that blasted the side of my camera. It knocked it out of my hands into the stage monitors and broke the focus hold button off. At that point I decided it was not worth it and left. MSO really needs to regulate who they give those passes out to.

:dunno:

I only wanted to go because of Lucero.

Turns out they played at 12:45 and I didn't get there 'til after 1. :sad2:

That's when I started drinking and wandering.

Just because i'm over 50 doesn't mean you have to call me names.

That's not very christian of you.

i'm sure we're just ribbing you

but seriously, I love the Kinks, Beatles, Hendrix, Zeppelin, Talking Heads, yada yada - but you can't just stop there.

:hsugh::hsugh:

I'm just kidding. :h5:

Ray LaMontagne was there as well, but wouldn't allow any photogs access to the pit. So I stayed and watched the Drive By Truckers (who are fucking fantastic)

Citizen Cope is great chill music. Dude is pretty talented.

I like the perspective of #5 in the first batch and feel up in the air on the crop. I like it but not sure if getting more of his hand and microphone would have made it better.

Haha

The pit was only about 36" wide. His road manager walked down in the front as he was playing and was like "He's coming down here, MOVE!"

So I hugged the stage as tight and snapped what I could. That's at 17mm :rofl:

I definitely wish I'd panned down & left a bit for it.

Again, thanks for the input guys.

Can't believe I'm apparently the best photographer ever. So good, I don't even need critiquing!

Can we all take turns sucking the same 3 photogs cocks though? PPPPPPLEEEEEEEASE?!
