This shoot wasn’t easy to pull off in the least bit.
We were put in the back of the arena by the soundboard on the floor. No risers or anything to elevate us above the standing room only crowd. So essentially we were shooting between heads and hands. And during the first song she was on her knees singing.
Maybe next time I’ll be more prepared for class.
