While I haven’t quite quit the habit of bringing my camera to shows. I’ve made it a priority to capture less images. Instead of capturing a series of ones I feel best capture the bands live performance. I’ve focused on getting one or two that I feel capture the essence the music, it’s sound and how it resonates with me. In the case of New Jersey’s TRU. I felt their mix of dream pop and shoegaze warranted more of an artsy, conceptualized approach than that of the Punk and Metal bands I’ve used to seeing.
Along with playing in a fist full of local bands. My friend Frank runs an indie label by the name of Sniffling Indie Kids. Since it’s formation I’ve had the chance to capture a number of the labels acts live. This morning, shortly after reposting some images from a summer 2015 show. He asked me if he could use a shot I had taken of the band LKFFCT (Lake Effect). Happy to oblige, I sent him a large file. Low and behold, the image was added to the site within minutes and my road to famed music photographer was paved.I’ve posted the image below. Along with a link to the page it’s posted on. If you’re a fan of indie rock. I highly recommend a thorough investigation of their catalog. Each and every release is a stand out and a perfect document of what’s happening musically in our neck of the woods.
