The Music Scene

October 2, 2014

Screaming Females performing at the Bowery BallroomMarissa Paternoster, prone, prodigiously shooting shards of skronk out to the audience (Baltimore City Paper 10/1/14)

I sent this note to the Music Editor at City Paper: “In the photo Ms. Paternoster is ‘supine’ (on her back). If she were ‘prone,’ as the caption has it, she’d be playing her guitar face-down on the floor. Difficult, to say the least . . .”

The only reason I know this is that many, many years’ ago, during army basic training, I qualified on the M-1 rifle range from the “prone” (belly down) position. But I’m ‘way out of touch in this modern music world. Can someone please tell me what the word “skronk” means?

Hands

This year at a Halloween dance, I made scores of photographs of costumed participants using the “Hip Shots” technique. The “shoot-from-the-hip” method, executed without concern for focus and framing, produces a lot of waste and the occasional dynamic picture. In this case I thought the free-form technique was especially appropriate for the subject. The following post is the last in the series. Meanwhile, you may like to tap the “Hip Shots” tag in the toolbar above for examples from the regular Hip Shot series, which post each Friday.

Legs

At a Halloween swing dance this year, I made scores of photographs of costumed participants using the free-form “Hip Shots” technique. The “shoot-from-the-hip” method, executed without concern for focus and framing, produces the occasional dynamic picture. In this case I thought the method was especially appropriate for the subject. The following post is third in a series which will appear on this blog each Wednesday in November. The fourth and last entry in the 2010 Halloween series, titled “Hands,” will post next Wednesday. Meanwhile, you may like to tap the “Hip Shots” tag in the toolbar above for examples from the regular series, which post each Friday.
