Photographer’s Notes

I knew the challenges that I’d be facing during Girl Talk’s set (high stage + tall table packed with monitors and laptops) so I came prepared. All the images of Gregg Gillis here were shot with my camera held about 9 feet in the air on a monopod. I released the shutter using the camera’s self timer. The biggest challenge was manuel focusing.
