Sure, the gig photography diet was something I have been deprived of for some time, and it had been part of my balikbayan itinerary to catch a few favorites again.
One thing I tend to miss when shooting gigs is a great chunk of the live performance experience. I’ve seen Oremuz play a few times before, but this is the first time I can wholeheartedly state that this is one world-class act. I cannot find anything to nitpick about them, and their music. Right after their set, I was approached by one of the vocalists, Shekhinah, about the possibility of exchanging contact information so I can share the shots I took, and I told her that their bassist, Russel, already messaged me inquiring about getting copies of photos I’ve taken of them since. I blamed my current OFW state for the delay in fulfilling their request. Later on, Russel asked me if I could tag along to any of their gigs, then I mentioned my being China-based, and she was quick to ask if I could the same, if ever they play in China.
I found no reason to say no to that.
