Concert Lighting at Deerhunter, Webster Hall, NYC, 15 Oct 2010

So I went to see the wonderful Deerhunter last night at Webster Hall.  This was my fifth time seeing them and I wanted this one to be a little more special.  I bought a ticket for this show with no intentions of shooting it, even though I really wanted to.  But I have shot them about four other times, so I decided tonight I would watch the show from the balcony and refrain from taking any photos.

As I was watching the show, I became inspired by the gorgeous lighting throughout the night.  I loved the way the lights just glowed and made beautiful shapes.  I loved the way the light hit the audience.  So, I decided to just take some images of the lighting from last night’s Deerhunter show.

You may not care for this, because it’s not concert photography, but it is concert (lighting) photography.  I am not a photo geek…Chet…I am just an admirer of light and sometimes the lighting could be just as or more inspiring than the show itself.

(Disclaimer:  The show was brilliant, I am not saying the show was bad, because the lighting was awesome.  They both rocked.  :))

Probably my favorite shot of the night.  This was the opposite side of the balcony.  When I look at this image, so many things come into my head.  It makes me want to live in a different decade, possible the 20s (or pre-1970s)

I had a little fun with this shot.  I don’t care for iPhoto, but there is a blur filter that I found pretty fun.  If you click it enough times, you almost get a tilt-shift effect.  I wonder if CS5 has this…

The show was great, and once again, my ear plugs were not strong enough.
