Attention! The New Portsdown is a local band in Singapore which opened for  We Are The In Crowd in Singapore last April 3, 2012. The show was organzed by Reconstrux Bookings  and I was lucky enough to be allowed to shoot inside the photo pit, thanks to Reconstrux’s main man, Jai. Along with the Malaysian band Oh Chentaku, the two front acts were well received by the fans of WATIC as they prepped the stage with modern punk rock & catchy tunes soaking fans in pop rock frenzy.

Oh Chentaku was one of the bands who opened up for We Are The In Crowd in Singapore last April 3, 2012. The show was organized by Reconstrux Bookings and I was lucky enough to be given full access to shoot from the photo pit. Oh Chentaku is a Malaysian band formed in 2007 at Kuala Lumpur whose musical influences are mixed in a bowl of of rock, punk, pop, electro, & post-hardcore. The band showcased top class punk rock-style show running riot on the stage, jumping from one end to another. (more…)

I was given the opportunity to shoot in the photo pit by one of the coolest dude on the planet, Jai of Reconstrux Bookings, when We Are The In Crowd played in Singapore last April 3, 2012. The American pop punk band from Poughkeepsie, New York,  is comprised of Taylor Jardine (vocals), Jordan Eckes (guitars), Mike Ferri (bass), Rob Chianelli (drums), & Cameron Hurley (guitars). Aside from frequent clicks through the band’s Facebook page, I haven’t had the opportunity to  check out the band in full detail before the show so I was not aware on how things would come up. The show was opened by Attention! The New Portsdown from Singapore & Oh Chentaku from Malaysia (which I will be posting after this), and judging from the front acts’ music genre, it gave me an idea on what was set-up for WATIC: Full Blown Energy.

Last August 6, 2011, BMX enthusiasts gathered inside the *scape Warehouse to witness an international BMX Flatland competition which featured professional world-class BMX athletes around the world. The event was called Groundforce 2011. I was informed of this event by a photographer friend & BMX enthusiast, Kris. As it was my first time to witness this, I didn’t have a clue what to expect so I brought along my 135mm f2 DC to be safe. When I arrived at the venue, I saw professional flatland photographers equipped with fisheyes & speed lights shooting the riders at worm’s eye view. I was bitchslapped with Flatland Photography 101.

I Will Be Heard – Hatebreed
In my previous post, I learned the values of large apertures & pushing ISO which embodied me to use my 50mm 1.8D as my arsenal in shooting concerts. Along came Hatebreed who were scheduled to play at *scape Warehouse in Singapore last November 4, 2010. Hatebreed is a hardcore band and if you haven’t gone to a hardcore show before, expect pain. I mean literally pain. Watching a hardcore moshpit, it seems that fans get the priviledge to knock each other’s lights out & get to be friends. Luckily, the crowd in Singapore is less hostile than the crowd back home (Philippines) so having a DSLR in your hands is a bit safer here.
