Red Handed Denial “Wanderer EP” Release Show

By September 23, 2016 Concerts, Photos

In April, Red Handed Denial released their “Wanderer EP”, and you can play the whole thing below while I show you the photos from the release show. Do it.

Ready?

They had the show at an upstairs venue I’d never been before, the stage was small, ceiling was low, practically no lighting, so I used a lot of flash and edited the photos differently than I normally would. It’s a lot more grittier than usual because the show was crazy. I’m used to shooting from photo pits or getting ample space in front of the stage, but this show was packed with friends and fans, and that’s how it should be!!! And it was insane.

I’m super happy about how those crowd images turned out cause I don’t usually (get to) take mosh pit photos for fear of my safety. I also had a bad experience caught in a From First To Last mosh pit at my first Warped Tour so I stay out of pits, I was standing at stage right to take these crowd shots by the door, and I was so scared of falling down the stairs (you can see the door in a few images below).

Chris is so happy about that crowd

I think Lauren was making a speech and this is the part when she was overwhelmed with feelings and gave up articulating and got to the point and said “I love you guys”

This is probably my favourite image from that night, look at their faces! They are so content and in the moment, taking in their hard work coming into life… live #punintended :’)

I tried to do a group photo of the band…

I realized I didn’t have a photo with the band and now we do.

Because you read it all the way to the end, here’s a fun fact as a reward—I also photographed their last CD release show in 2013, that was my first step trying to get on their radar because I really really really wanted to work with them… and now I do :D You can see the photos here.

Thank you for reading!
