Got invited to another concert, and as long as I get in for free and the organizers provide me a photographer's pass, my inclination is to say yes. It was headlined by Silent Sanctuary but the main reason I went there was to watch and shoot IceCream Project, one of the front acts. My photography club co-member Chi Lopez plays drums for IceCream, and it was my first time to see his band live. So yeah, for me they were the main draw (no disrespect to Roots of Nature and Silent Sanctuary).
It was a lot harder to shoot this time compared to when I made my urbandubious concert photography debut. I noticed back then I could climb and shoot at the stage all by myself but now it seems all shooters have summoned the courage to join the fray and get close to the bands. Well somebody had to blaze a trail, right? The stage was really cramped and crowded especially during the main act. Luckily the organizers were a bit lenient (maybe too lenient in this case) to let shooters freely roam. I guess no one really needed a photographer's pass in the first place.
Anyway, it was an enjoyable challenge. And it's always fun to shoot. Here are my photos :

That's all, folks! Thanks for looking.
