this is my favorite band. it was pretty awesome photographing them again, and this time actually getting decent images. i’m surprised i kept it together. ps: i was singing along to hit or miss really loudly at this point. so maybe i didn’t keep it all together. i’m unprofessional sometimes.
Jack Barakat of All Time Low | Warped Tour, Atlanta GA 2009
Since everyone else is sharing their warped stories and photos. I thought I’d share one of the worst photos I’ve ever taken. 2009 was my first year shooting Warped. I had no idea what to expect, and was still using a Canon Rebel.
All Time Low was the last band I shot that day. After breaking my flip flop during Alexisonfire’s set, a tornado warning, and a stage change for ATL. I was excited, it was the second time I had been able to photograph them. Needless to say, I was not prepared for them to be in the Amphitheater. I can’t wait for a “do-over” even though I’ve shot the band at least six times since.
Warped is always fun. Despite sun poising, sunburn, a broken flip flop and failed photos of All Time Low. All the other bands turned out great. But I’m way more prepared this year!
