November 14, 2008 – Following Cute Is What We Aim For‘s energetic set, Secondhand Serenade closed out the night with a rocking, heartfelt set that had the ladies swooning.
Compared to Cute Is What We Aim For's highly energetic set, Secondhand Serenade was a much slower-paced shoot. The main obstacles for this set were the lighting and positioning of large speaker monitors around singer John Vesely.
To deal with the first challenge, I utilized flash for accent lighting, which helped a little in adding dimension the scene.
I photographed this performance using the Nikon D3 and 24-70mm f/2.8.
