Militant Groove @ Local & Live ’10

Lighting at “Battle of the Bands” style comps like Local & Live 2010 at the Gaslight Tavern is typically very little to completely non-existent.

More often than not I will rock with flash at these events, but unless I can place my speedlites on stage, I’ll shoot with a single 580EX II in the hotshoe or off camera via cord.

With these gigs, the fun part is not really the taking of the pics, but the post processing!! I’ll tend to over expose (if anything) these shots while shooting, as in the back of my mind I know I will be applying some pretty dramatic effects in Lightroom later.
