Hybrid Studios Show | Orange County Documentary Photographer

Last week I went to check out some friends' bands and brought my camera along with me.
I loved seeing all the amazing female musicians shredding on guitar and rockin' vocals. As a whole, it was a really fun show outside Hybrid Studios located in Santa Ana, CA.

I arrived a little late and caught the last few songs from Precious Kid. The drummer from Dylan Minnette's band Wallows filled in and it was a blast!

Up Next...The Gromble. These guys have been playing together for years and at this show they played all new music for their longtime fans. The new tunes are pretty rad.

My husband, in the black hat, was running sound for the show - proud wife moment!

Up Next...No Vacation..From San Francisco! It was a treat to have this awesome band stop by Orange County on their California tour.


And last but not least, The Aquadolls! Their high energy had the crowd moving and they put on a great show.

The Shakes & Dear Kora | Orange County Documentary Photographer

Last night I attended a small show for local bands in Lake Forest, CA. The opener was The Shakes. They were a fun alternative indie rock band that moved people to dance which I really enjoyed. And next up was Dear Kora. I loved their emotional vibe and hint of Flyleaf tone. They really captured the audience and even had a mosh pit going at the end.

In the past when I have done concert photography I have solely focused on the band but now with the documentary mindset, I found myself focusing on the fans and getting the raw emotion of the show.

I shot in RAW but I put my settings to Monochrome (Black & White) in camera, knowing that I could see them in color later when editing. While editing, I decided I liked how the majority of photos looked in Black & White and stuck with that. 

Hope you enjoy :)

Venue: Orange County DIY located at North Dwarf Records in Lake Forest, CA.
