Earlier today I posted the images of Lindsey Lee, Alicia Rohde, Alicia Peterson, Kara Simonson and Michelle B. from our Second Street Photography Studios "Strobist" photo shoot on my website under the "Models" Gallery.
Blue Rodeo was the headliner for the 3rd and final night of the Thunder Bay Blues Festival. Buddy Guy was the headliner the night before. Little did I know that this band had such a following in Canada and that the festival grounds would be extremely packed to see them.
My shot angles were limited since I was on the back side of the barrier ...pushed right up to it. My three lady friends, who I met over the past three days, allowed me to move a couple feet around them in my hopes to capture a good shot. It was just too crowded to really move much! Unfortunately, when Jim Cuddy and the others began moving about I wasn't able to get a decent action shot without a mic stand in front or other band members in the background.
I don't know who she is (below) , but her credentials said she was with the band. It would have been nice to be in her shoes to capture some different angle shots of the band. I would be interested to see what shots she got!
Here are some initial images from our Second Street Photography Studios Photo Shoot this past Sunday, 07-17-11. I've posted these on my Facebook wall, but decided to put them up on the blog for those not on FB.
We started off shooting at Hidden Falls in St. Paul, but after two rotations of models we needed to pack up because of a storm approaching us.
We ended up going back to the studio where we photographed both indoors and out.
The temperatures were in the mid 90's with very high humidity.

...these four local bands played at this years Thunder Bay Blues Festival. In total there were nine local bands who played the festival. I've posted images to my website. Click on the links below to see the photos.
Grand Funk Railroad was the headliner for Day One of the Thunder Bay Blues Festival. Grand Funk is from the town where I grew up in Michigan.
I had every album up until the mid 70's. On Time was their first album followed shortly by their "Red Album" Grand Funk.
I began editing these images and finally decided to stop at 83. I'll never get through all my images at this rate.
There were a couple ladies who I got to talk to and found out they were very big Grand Funk fans! These two ladies allowed me to move about them along the barrier so I could photograph the band. I was still limited in my angles as the large crowd was pushed right up to the barrier. Thank you ladies for putting up with me!
