Andrew Stockdale and company roared into town and put on another high energy show at the sold out Observatory in Southern California. Wolfmother is a favorite of mine and this is the fourth time I've seen them but the first chance I've had to photograph them live. I am happy to report that the band are very photogenic, striking the appropriate rock star poses in just the right way. In other words they were really fun to shoot! The Observatory is known for having a slightly dark stage, it was better than usual tonight. I captured these with my 17mm-50mm f/ 2.8 lens. Probably mostly at f/ 3.2 or f/3.5 and a shutter speed of 125-160 because of the darkish stage. Pretty happy with the results because Mr. Stockdale just LOOKS like a rock star god bless him which makes my job just a little bit easier!
