I was surprised at the lack of photographers in the pit for Sunday’s Stone Temple Pilots show at Merriweather Post pavilion. I went just hoping to get some good shots of frontman Scott Weiland but ended up staying and enjoying the big rock show. You can read my review of the show over on DCist.
I quite enjoyed shooting this show, Weiland never really let loose but the DeLeo brothers were definitely mugging for the cameras. At one point Dean, the guitarist, stuck the neck of his guitar directly in my lens and held it there so I could take a few snaps. After he pulled away and did a turn, he made eye contact with me, cracked a smile and winked. I gave him a thumbs up and kept shooting.
