The Devil Wears Prada

Taken at Warped Tour - Milwaukee, WI

Camera Body:
Nikon D3x
Camera Lens:
24-70mm f/2.8
ISO: 100
f/: f/4.0
Shutter: 1/200

The Devil Wears Prada is a Hardcore/Christian/Metal band originally from Dayton, OH.
Seeing this band live was so fun! The lyrics are passionate and inspiring while the band itself is in your face and just living in that moment of the song.
Mike, the lead singer, was definitely my favorite to photograph because he was hard to even keep an eye on! He was never in the same place twice on stage. And I actually had to back away a couple times because he got so close. 

Check them out! You won't regret it!


CrescendoTV Catalog

So, it has been a while again since I have posted with updates on CTV.

The reason is because my finals had a hold on me again.
In Digital Pre-Press, w/ Joe Abiera (one of the most amazing instuctors ever), we were assigned to make a catalog. 
It could have been on anything we wanted, we just had to sell products.

SO, I decided, Why not make a catalog for CrescendoTV?! 
Where you would be able to buy our gear!
(this is the final version but the lines on the corners are for when I cut the actual catalog out, so it won't be on the actual catalog itself.)

It took me forever, but I LOVED how it turned out! 
Keep in mind, this is NOT REAL, CrescendoTV DOES NOT sell these items! 
We hope that in the near future, we will be able to though.

I See Stars is a post-hardcore / electronica band w/ six band members. They released an album in the beginning of this year called, "The End of The World Party" and will be releasing a new one in 2012. So get stoked!
I was able to meet and interview Brent(guitarist) & Andy(drummer) on their tour bus w/ CrescendoTV, and they were hilarious!! Definitely the type of dudes I would enjoy hanging out with.
They put on a great live show at The Bottom Lounge! Their fans were loving it! Hell, I was loving it!

You guys should definitely check them out!

Taken at All Stars Tour - Milwaukee, WI
Camera Body:
Nikon D3X
24-70mm f/2.8
ISO: 2000 
Shutter: 1/125sec 
F/stop: f/2.8

MIW is definitely a heavier band, more in the genre of metalcore/gothic metal. But they know how to get the crowd going! I remember as I was taking these pictures, I had a couple "fan moments". I actually had to stop myself from getting too into the music because I wasn't concentrating on my photos! HAHA!

The greatest part of this experience though, was being able to meet Chris and Ricky for the second time, since CTV has started. 

MIW is full of talented musicians who LOVE putting on a show for their fans. It's ridiculous how dedicated they are to their 'Creatures'. This band is full of passion/rage/love/hate and everything inbetween!

If you haven't already, you NEED to check them out. Great guys! Great band! <3
