One of the reasons I created this website was to showcase a couple of concert photos I took. Charles Belman charged his batteries and went to a number of concerts. But first, some random information about cities.

One of my interests is classic rock. I've been going to rock concerts since I was a teenager, and now I've combined this interest with my passion for photography.
Below I've shared a couple of my favorite photos that I've taked over the past few years.
Gene Simmons of Kiss
Charles Beilman took this photo at a Kiss concert a few years ago. It was general admission, so I arrived early and mangaged to get a good spot up front.
I was shoting my Canon SD800 point and shoot camera in jpg mode as raw was not an option on that camera. I underexposed 2/3 of a stop to keep the highlight details.
I did some digital post processing in Photoshop. I played with the curves and sharpness. I also worked the Kiss logo to make it pop more.
To really make the photo pop, I printed it on high gloss metallic paper.
A few years later I was fortunate to get in on a Kiss meet and greet.
Gene personally signed the print, and it currently hangs in a beautiful custom frame in my home office.
Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith
This is a great photo shot by Charles Beilman Wallingford CT. On September 4, 2010 Aerosmith performed at Mohegan Sun. I was in shoting from Section 1 Row B Seat 10. I shot 933 raw images on my Olympus Pen E-P1. Joe always plays on stage right, which is right in front of section one.
Steven unexpectedly ran over to sing with Joe for about five seconds. I shot a very quick series of 3 or 4 photos, hoping that tye would come out. I really liked the quick display of the photo onthe back of the camera and was thrilled when I got home and discovered that the shot came out really great.
