Absolutepunk User Photog 2009

Way to go guys. I received around 100 entries, and these are the ones I went with. This was no contest, just a way to showcase what our users are doing out there. Someone asked me the other day how I got such great photos, and the only advice I can give are the the three F's: Focus (including lighting), Framing and just have Fun. It's really that simple. I remember reading The Dillinger Escape Plan saying something along the lines that it's not the guitar that makes a good guitarist, but the skill put into it (i.e. buy a shit guitar and make it awesome).

Thank you to all the entries. Keep clicking, but remember, first three songs and then just enjoy the damn show!

love and respect.
