A few months back I shot a portrait session for Houma, LA’s Baby Bee. We had a great time, and I had been wanting to catch one of their live shows. Suffice it to say, these boys don’t disappoint. With tons of energy and an unbelievably thick sound for a duo, Baby Bee rocked the NOLA Fashion Week Preview Party. Here are a few of my favorites from the night.
The set was really high energy with lots of movement from the Stark brothers. Unfortunately, the lighting at Eiffel Society is more for clubbing it up than photographing bands. The venue was relatively dark, and there were of course the ever-present red washes to deal with. To get enough light, I ended up having to drag the shutter quite a bit, and shot around 1600 ISO for most of the set. This led to things being not quite as crisp as I would have liked, but you work with what you got! There was a welcome “spot” on Joe when he was standing at the mic (which I tried to make the most of).
I can’t wait for these guys to come around again. If you haven’t seen them live, do yourself a favor and make the effort. You won’t be disappointed.
