Airbourne // John Raptis


The photo pit was divided into two halves so you could either be stage left or stage right. No room to move. I knew that Joel was getting ready to explode the beer can on his head, he was busily shaking it for half a song it seemed. But, I was on the wrong side of the stage to get the shot I really wanted. But it proved to be ok, because I still got the spray effect coming out of the can EVERYWHERE and managed to keep the subject in focus.
