Backlog & Memories

March 11, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I appear to be sorting through a bit of a photo editing backlog.  Actually, that's an understatement.  I realized this week that I'm really far behind editing photos from gigs and that's a bad habit to get into (shame on me!)  All of a sudden it was the middle of March and I've barely touched anything since late January. Yeeesh.

I just finished editing a set from a Calgary Beer Core show at the beginning of February featuring three fantastic metal bands - World Class White Trash, Leave the Living & Burning Effigy. I know it's cliche to always say "if you get a chance to see any of them, you should totally check them out" but whatever. Cliche away, you should totally go see them if you get the chance.  I think we're quite spoiled by the amount of talented musicians in Alberta. 

 

Back to the enormous backlog of photos for a second.  I have a fairly crappy memory and I have to see a band a few times before I can actually remember their name. I'm getting old and I go to a decent number of shows, it happens.  That's the wonderful thing about having a camera with me everywhere I go, once I edit a photo I can look back and think, "Hey, I remember seeing them, they were great!"  Then I'll check to see the date I took the photo and cross check it with the Facebook event page to figure out the name of the band.  I don't know if all this technology helps me remember, or makes it so I don't try hard enough, but it sure is great.
