A word from the photographer
ON THIS NIGHT: Triumph
I was so excited to get to see this great Canadian band on their “Progressions of Power” tour, in support of their fourth album of the same name. I had been a big fan ever since hearing the album “Rock & Roll Machine” a few years prior. After studying earlier Triumph album covers and the photos they used, I could tell they came with a great stage production.
The Rock Show
On with the show and Triumph came on with all gun’s blazing, wow!!I was shooting this show at the comfortable environs of the Capitol Theater in Passaic, New Jersey. I had shot many shows there and the venue had become almost like a home base to me. The light show, the equipment on stage complete with “white” Marshall Cabinets, first time I had ever seen those. This was a “ROCK SHOW”.
The band entertained the audience with many of their best songs, “Lay It on The Line”, “Hold On” and the cover song “Rocky Mountain Way”. As a photographer, I was amazed at how good the light show was, including a huge Triumph sign all made out of white light bulbs hanging up behind the drum kit. Just add multiple follow spots and plenty of stage fog and you were guaranteed a night of amazing images.
Waiting to be developed
Again, as was the case back in the days of shooting film, the wait was on as my two or three rolls of film were being developed immediately. I did have my own home photo lab, however it was only for black and white developing and printing. About one or two days later, here were my prints ready for review. Sure enough, as you can see here, I captured the show just as I saw it with my own eyes, perfectly.
