Florence + the Machine

I get in front of the set a half hour before the start of Jane’s Addiction. I want to get a good spot. I stow my bag under a seat attached to a barricade – what separates the audience from the stage – and try to set my camera for the lighting situation. Fog. Blue lights. I’m trying to avoid motion blur. All day I’ve been faced with overexposure and motion blur. I feel relief when I hear the veteran photographers I’ve shared these cramped spaces with all day complaining about it, too.

The two amps stacked in front of me throb with every tickle of the bass guitar. Dancers, one of whom is Perry’s wife, straddle and climb the set, somehow finding a rhythm to dance to.
