This is a broad category. Are we being entertained or doing
the entertainment? What rates as amusement and diversion to
some of us, such as a county fair, may not appeal to others.
I have tried to capture not only some of our local forms of
leisure and recreation, but some of the more spectacular events
at home and abroad as well.
Show photography has always fascinated me. It seems to bring
out my creativity and sense of focus. Photographing bands
at night, in dark clubs may sound like work, but I've found
it to be quite relaxing for me and I really enjoy it. Using
a high quality lens with no flash can be a real challenge!
I personally enjoy photographing artists and performers, as
they are absorbed in their craft. I have had some luck, captured
some great local acts and a few noteworthy celebrities in
this pursuit. At any rate it is always a good excuse to get
out and listen to music.
