Figured I would try and get a discussion going on this:
I personally enjoy taking pics of bands while I'm at a show. I understand that there are usually paid photographers, but I know the moment I captured was one I found important.
Thoughts on this whole thing?
Honestly, I want to fucking punch people when I see someone holding it up FOR THE ENTIRE FUCKING SHOW. I came to watch the band, and enjoy a live experience. I didn't come to watch some asshole with a cell phone holding it up the entire time.
Additionally, 99 times out of 100, the videos are fucking awful. Blurry, distorted audio, shaky, etc.
