Dazzletine at Brillobox

Saturday night I got to shoot Dazzletine in concert again at another of their crazy shows at Brillobox in Lawrenceville. Dazzletine is a local Pittsburgh band that has a glam rock-influenced visual look and puts on a very strong live performance. Brillobox, like most small venues in the ‘Burgh, has terrible lighting so I used a radio triggered flash at stage left to light the band. I first used this technique with another Dazzletine show back in November. Normally I don’t like to use flash for shows as it can be distracting to the band and the audience (as well as a waste of battery power) but it would have been difficult to get clear shots in the dim lighting. Fortunately the shots I’ve been getting this way look really good.

The above photos of Legs Like Tree Trunks, one of the opening bands, show more or less what it looks like without a flash, which I set up after their set. The Dazzletine shots were all converted to black and white in post as I felt they created stronger images.
