Open Mic Night

Recently, for no particular reason, I posted this image on my Facebook page.  I liked it more than I thought I would, so I figured I’d make it an official blog post out of it.

A few weeks back a friend called to ask if I could shoot some images of his bar’s “open microphone night” for his website.  It was a last minute phone call, but as it turns out, the timing was perfect and I could make it.

The idea of the shoot was to take a bunch of pictures of the various lights in use and capture the general look and feel of the open mic night.  I was a lot of fun to shoot, and turned out to be better than expected because I shot a concert at the Chicago Theatre a few nights later.

Anyway, during the course of the evening, I moved around to a variety of locations trying to capture the show from different locations.  During one of the last songs of the night, I made my way towards the back of the room and noticed the girl recording her friends’ performing on stage with an iPhone.  It was a nice change from all the other images I took, and turned out to be one of my favorites of the night.
