John Mellencamp @ Entertainment Centre, November ’08

This marks the first time I have shot a gig with the 70-200 f/2.8L IS.

There was no pit area at the Entertainment Center tonight for this event, and we were only allowed to shoot from the soundboard, so I couldn’t have gotten by without this lens.

I’m only posting a few pics because when you are shooting from the one vantage point 60m back, it really is up to the lighting guy and the artist to do something different to make interesting captures.

And only being allowed to shoot for the first 3 songs means the John Mellencamp has to do his thing pretty quickly!
