  2. It's a great idea to go to large events with the intent of
    photographing the people instead of the actual event. The problem is
    that this requires a tremendous amount of footwork, and you still have
    to honor the rules of photographic composition, lighting, lens use,
    etc.
    You have much too many images of people with their backs to the
    camera, too much sky in the images, and not enough variety in your
    focal lengths. In the few images that have some semblance of
    composition, your timing is way off. Most photographers have mountains
    of failed images, usually in an attempt to get a few well made shots.
    Here, I see no real attempt to control the frame.
    As AB has already stated, your black & white images show promise but
    fail to deliver. Do not be discouraged...keep shooting. I think you
    are on to something. Many photographers avoid people photography
    because of the difficulties involved, but you seem to have a passion
    to move beyond the standard snapshot image.

    So where's MICK?

    These should be on the floor of the darkroom,--or recycled into 0000000s again.

    Captures the atmosphere of the gig pretty well IMO, in an off the wall
    sort of way and quite original in that you aren't concentrating on the
    performance.

    You were doing this for interest, snapshot style and aren't claiming
    anything, so I wonder why all the flak ?...

    I think people have the preception that the images should look like whats
    in the paper the following day... after all its the prototype to fit.

    I wasnt attempting to capture the stones or any particular band in
    general...
    it was where I happen to be at the time... i wasnt letting the camera
    dictate me.

    btw I had to smuggle my camera in so i dont have much of a choice in lenses.

  7. Looks like a typical stones concert. I went to see them in '82(83?), at
    Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas. The front band was ZZ Top. It was a great
    show and I'm glad I went, I still have a bad taste in my mouth over the
    fact that it was supposed to be their farewell tour. They have toured about
    every year since and for the longest time they were saying it was the
    farewell tour.

    Um...why would it leave a bad taste in your mouth that it wasn't their
    farewell tour? Do you hate them and wish they never toured again, or are
    you just so shallow that you wanted to have bragging rights about going to
    their last tour? Strange.

  9. When replying to:

    No I don't hate them at all, but why advertise that it will be your farewell
    tour, and then say it every year for several years?

    I might have gone anyway as I had never seen the Stones live, and they were
    in town, but anouncing that it would be their last tour did help cinch the
    decision.

    Twisted.
