This past Saturday I headed off to the Starlite room here in Edmonton to shoot my friends Nick and Adam Dilullo’s band, Chasing Jones as they officially released their third album, “Loves Got Teeth”. As always, the show was exciting, electrifying and tons of fun. Whenever I set out for a photo shoot, I always think about the light. In the past, lighting at the Starlite room was reasonable for concert photography. This past weekend however, the lighting had relegated me to use ridiculous settings such as ISO 8000 and 12800 at f/2.8. Hardly the optimal shooting conditions for a picky photographer. Often when these less than optimal conditions exist, I try to use the slow shutter speed to my advantage and indulge in some artistic blurs. Sometimes I think these types of images expose the true excitement and feelings that go with a great performance. Here are a few of my favourites from a fun filled evening with my friends, Nick and Adam – Chasing Jones. Click on an image to view larger version.

Until next time…
