I was fortunate enough to see Cobra Chest and Ripp Winkler at the Reptile Palace in Oshkosh for the 4th of July activities this year (formerly known as Independence Day). It had been awhile since I had photographed live bands, but it’s like riding a bike, you never really forget. The Reptile Palace is known for it’s space, or lack there of, so shooting there is usually a task all on its own, the red lights don’t help. But I was able to get some really cool shots and I even asked some of the band members to pose for a portrait or two.
Here’s the image I got asking someone who was a stranger to make their image.
