In the beginning of April, Sydney-based photographer Rohan Anderson found himself embroiled in a nasty back-and-forth with the band Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
So this is pretty much not the way to work with anyone.
I have taken photos of people performing, and you know what they do when they want to use the image? They ask me for it. Being on stage doesn’t somehow put you above asking.
I photographed Melanie Martinez back in February, and when she wanted to use a shot for her instagram, you know what she did? She asked me if I could email her the shots from that night, and when she posted it here, she made sure I was properly credited. It’s not hard, guys.
So, every experiment doesn’t have a great result. I shot this on my Rollei, using Ilford SFX 200. It’s supposed to be a film that has a quasi infrared effect when paired with a red filter. So, I looked for a Bayonet I red filter on eBay, then proceeded to run a roll through my camera. The results weren’t what I expected. Really washed out, low contrast images. It also didn’t render blues as dark as I thought it would. I was totally expecting blue skies to appear nearly black, and that didn’t happen. Better luck next time.

On Saturday, I met up with my friend Quana and walked around the Lower East Side a bit to brush up on my people skills. It was a good time
Brother Ali, Brooklyn Bowl.
My favorite shot from Friday’s concert. You can see the entire set of images from that night here.
I also have a small announcement. My usual portfolio page is still http://deshaunic.us, but it now contains everything except concert work.
I decided to take advantage of the new top-level domains, so my concert work can now be found at http://dac.photography
I’m still rearranging things over at the original site, so it’ll be a work in progress for a bit.
Immortal Technique, Brooklyn Bowl
Immortal Technique on the War & Peace tour. Favorite moment? A fan was recording the performance from the front, and he takes the fan’s phone and raps directly into it, as seen in the first picture.

Last night, Brother Ali and Immortal Technique performed at Brooklyn Bowl on their War & Peace tour. Good music, good vibe in the crowd, just good all around.
