This show was insanely crowded and after shooting the first three songs I was glad to get out. You’d think standing hip to hip with college age girls would have been interesting, but it was mostly annoying and stress inducing (am I getting old, or what?).

The continued low lighting and constant movement of the hip hop artists required a change in technique, so after a couple of questionable exposures I dropped the ISO to 800, dialed down the shutter speed to 1/15 and popped the built-in flash. It might have been fun to stay around to experiment a little longer with slow flash exposures, but I’d had enough of the crush of humanity by that point.
