URVAH KHAN (Toronto, Ontario) SCRAP – “Rock is dead, we built this from the scraps”

Urvah Khan’s got an amazing look and is a fantastic performer – a concert photographer’s dream! I got right up front and in there to make sure I was at the centre of the action.

RAISED EMOTIONALLY DEAD (Toronto, Ontario) Hard Rock / Alternative

Not just a band, a visual spectacle! Apparently, this isn’t even their full crew because the Bovine’s small size didn’t lend itself to including the backup singers, etc. on stage.

Someone’s flash went off at the same time I snapped this picture – what a difference some extra light makes! (Notice the transparent fingers.)

This red-shirted dancer would jump into the fray every so often and do some mesmerizingly robotic moves.

It’s a bit hard to tell in this photo, but the drummer’s cymbals are positioned reaaaally high.

It was the birthday of one of their backup singers, so they brought her up and gave her a cake. You can just see her peeking out from the left and blowing out the candle.

NOTES:
-Seeing as how there’s usually some noise that shows up in the shots due to having to use high ISO settings, I tried something different and ADDED some noise during the editing process (except for the Strawman pics). Not bad, but I’m not yet sure if I’ll use that look too much in the future.
