Since I left my position at Food & Wine and Travel + Leisure, I have started freelancing more. One of the projects I’ve picked up is photographing concerts for The Bowery Presents’ House List, which provides reviews and imagery from all of Bowery’s music venues across New York City. These include Webster Hall, Brooklyn Bowl, Mercury Lounge, The Bowery Ballroom, Music Hall of Williamsburg, Terminal 5, The Wellmont Theatre and the IZOD Center in New Jersey.
On Dec. 2, Baths played at The Bowery Ballroom in the Bowery. My boyfriend wrote the review for the electronic pop band led by Will Wiesenfeld as I snapped away to capture the show. It was an intimate setting, and with just one person providing all of the music from their laptop and few instruments, it was a bit of a challenge to make aesthetically appealing through the lens. The light was interesting, though not ideal, and there were dozens of small candles placed around the entire stage that provided a lot of depth to the setting. Baths was great, the crowd was relaxed and everyone was grooving along as if this was their last chance to dance. See some additional shots below:
