Worth Taking concert at Bottom of the Hill, San Francisco

Photographed an indoor concert by a band going by the name of “Worth Taking” at a bar in SF called “Bottom of the Hill”. Enjoyed the music and was a great experience shooting a concert for the first time.

The mayhem behind the show

I photographed the backstage activity for the Wharton Charity Fashio Show this year. It is quite a spectacle backstage! The models need to change within a matter of a few seconds between their rounds on the ramp. The designers and artists scramble amongst the models. There’s a lot of movement and madness behind! Lot of nervous laughter, anxious waiting when waiting to get on the ramp, and high fiving to cheer eachother up.

As someone who loves to take candid shots, I really enjoyed the experience! It is challenging as the lighting is terrible, and it’s close to impossible to get the shot you want as there’s always a ton of obstacles in front or behind. It’s critical to have a fast lens. It’s again critical to be quick on your feet, and have enough space on your card to take as many images as you can and then sort them later. I also realized I need to soon invest in a good mounted flash to help in these low light conditions.
