Photos: Goo Goo Dolls at The Wellmont Theatre 11.11.11

The Wellmont Theatre, Montclair, NJ, 11.11.11 – After completing an outdoor tour this summer in support of their latest release Something for the Rest of Us, the Goo Goo Dolls continued to make their way through the US on a run of indoor shows and stopping in New Jersey at The Wellmont Theatre along the way.

This was my second time shooting Goo Goo Dolls this year and I had a lot more fun doing it this time.  I was the only approved photographer so I had free reign of what was a tight pit.  The first time I shot them at PNC, we had no pit and couldn’t move around which makes for boring photos.  PNC’s lighting was also very hot on John’s face and dark around him so it was tough to expose properly.  And PNC was 104 degrees.  The Wellmont is climate controlled.  🙂  Most of these are at iso 1600 and shot with 2 bodies and all 3 of my zooms.
