I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph a musician that I have grown to really enjoy over the last few months by the name of Andrew Bird at the House of Blues, Orlando this week. The venue was packed with his enthusiastic fans and certainly delivered with his quirky vocals and manneurisms along with his trademark whistling and looping violin effects. What was particularly enjoyable to photograph was not just the musicians themselves but the entire set. I got to give the lighting director a huge "well done" as the lighting was phenomenal as were the props. Standing in the rear of the venue mid set , I was really able to take in the deep purples and all the textures that were being thrown up behind the band. All of these elements brought to mind the classic concerts such as Phish and Pink Floyd who are known for their lighting productions. A big thanks to Andrew Bird's management for allowing me access. If you are not familiar with his music, I highly encourage you check him out if you enjoy beautiful violin mixed with beautiful vocals.
