Top Concert Photos Of 2013

This year I was forced into a more active role in the visual media department of Music.Defined. Kari, who took the majority of the pics for us in 2011 and 2012, had to be out of town a lot so I ended up taking pictures at a lot of shows I normally wouldn’t have. Hopefully she’ll be able to shoot more often in 2014, as I think she’s a better photographer than I am. That said, my “mass quantity theory” of shooting shows seems to have garnered some decent results. These 10 photos might not actually be my “best” shots, but they are my favorites. I don’t know enough about photography to really say which ones are best. If you’re a professional photographer and want to pore over my albums and let me know, just check out our Facebook page where you can find all the pics that I’ve taken and most of Kari’s pics as well.

Anyway, here they are, starting with number 10 (much like a noble spirit embiggens the smallest man, you can embiggen each pic by clicking on it):
