El Tambor

"The Drummer" by Wes Aldridge

This is a portrait of Andres Garban, drummer for Nashville rock band Thaxton Ward, at Mercy Lounge. At most Thaxton Ward shows that I shoot, I never get many shots of Andres because he is always stuck in the back of the stage and the lighting is usually terrible. Well, amigo, I felt like you got left out a few times, so you made the blog.

I love this shot. It is one of my favorite music photos. A simple portrait. I don't want to tell you the shot settings and light set up because I think it would take away from the composition and mood of the photograph. Let's let it be my little secret.
