Motion City Soundtrack took over The Fillmore at Irving Plaza for a evening of freewheeling punk-pop. The band is currently on tour supporting their fourth and newest release, My Dinosaur Life.

Concert Photography Notes

Motion City Soundtrack are a fun group of guys to shoot; they look the part, keep the energy really high and they don’t hide from the camera. Aside from trying to fit all of Justin Pierre’s hair into the frame, the hardest part about covering a MCS concert is keeping the shutter speed high enough to capture all of the rocking out.

The 24-70mm and new nikon 70-200mm VR II did all of the heavy lifting at this show.
