Shout even louder

Ok so I changed my mind, (Skeetown rules) I am back tomorrow with more Portobello stuff, There are two types of performers, the animated ones and the static ones. I know which ones I like to photograph. lol I've been shooting mostly with a 35mm f1.4L canon lens, it's becoming a favorite. It's not that I have anything against zoom lenses but a good wide prime tends for me anyway to make my work more personal. A photographers work is given shape and style by his personal vision. It is not simply technique, but the way he looks at life and the world around him. -Pete Turner

I love this. I kinda think I'm understanding what you're trying to illustrate with your statement re: prime lenses and making your work personal. Barely. But there is a mood attached to this shot that makes it quite... emotional.
Love it!
Mr Skee: Shooting from the angle that i've adopted here behind the 2 people has given this shot an " I was there kind of feeling" It gives the observer a feeling that he or she can relate to.

I agree that shooting between the two crowd persons makes one feel like they're there in person, at the concert. I like your style, Skee!
