Econoline Crush: Center for Perfoming Arts (Van)
Opening for Alice Cooper: Psycho Drama Tour 2008

Econoline Crush was one of my favorite bands of the 90's, and Ive had the pleasure of shooting them twice in the last year.

Trevor, the frontman (pictured) is such a great showman, and if he sees you with the camera, he will make it a point to play it up for the shot.

Which is always awesome.

Extra points if you can tell me where the title came from ;)

I've resubmitted the file with no border or watermark, and in b/w instead of colour.

don't know about the title, but the black and white surely adds a lot of drama and emotion to the photo.

Awesome shot. I love the way he stands out from and blends in with the shadows :)

And the title's from Queen, isn't it?

Yeah, it reminds me of a picture or video of Freddy lit with a single spot light

The one where he is wearing white gloves and a tuxedo in the blue light

With such dramatic stage lighting (one spotlight) you have the opportunity to shoot for the emotion, the pure moment.

when nothing else matters but the music.

It allows me to get some dramatic shots without the junk on stage in the BG

Thanks for the comment Kim.

Oh man that is a perfect capture :) I just love how the red jumps out against the black. They make as much a statement as his posture and expression ;)
