At concerts I’m always looking for something besides the usual "performer in front of microphone" shot.
On Monday night, I got that and more.
Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin was energetically taking advantage of the runway stage in First Niagara Center. He ran by me when suddenly their confetti canons blasted tons of confetti into the crowd, covering everyone on the floor including me, inside my camera bag and clothing.
It was pretty cool looking, so I waited for him to run back by me through the confetti and I grabbed a couple of frames. I was hoping they would be in focus, because through that chaos, who knows what my autofocus lenses are going to key in on.
To my delight, it was in focus and gave me something very different from the usual concert shot.
