Let me set the scene for you. De La Soul had just started their first song. Posdnuos, seen here, stepped down from the stage to the barricade ledge to perform to the crowd. The pit was crowded with about 8 photographers, as well as family of the group’s DJ, Maseo (which was pretty awesome).
When this happened, the crowd went wild, and naturally, so did the pit. See that camera in the upper right? Don’t be that guy.
Instead of waiting for a shot that he could have easily taken with his eye on the viewfinder, he repeatedly held his camera over his head, and outstretched his arms to get shots, which effectively photobombed me and the other people working in the pit. It’s a douchebag move and you really shouldn’t do it.
You also shouldn’t stand on the barricade, which he also did. Listen, you are a guest. The people on the other end of that barricade? They paid to see the concert. Don’t abuse your position at the front of the stage by blocking everyone’s view, even if it’s “only for 3 songs.” You could see that the people behind him were not pleased.
