This year, I was able to shoot one of my biggest musical heroes, DJ Shadow, for Grimy Goods. I’ve seen Shadow countless times but never had a camera on me. One of the biggest challenges in shooting live music is making a DJ set look interesting. It’s usually just a dude standing behind turntables and a laptop, but thankfully, DJs have been focusing a lot more on their visual presentation. While Shadow’s set was a pretty standard setup, his visuals were awesome and made for some good photos.
