I don't typically share stories behind pictures, but for this one, I will. As I photographed Shinedown during their July 28 Indianapolis show, I saw Brent Smith shaking what I thought was a fan's hand. I took the picture. I was off to the side. I took my eye away from my camera to see that, as he sang, Smith was not shaking the hands of fans, but was motioning to the photographers in the photo pit to come forward to shake THEIR hands. I've never seen this before. To be acknowledged by a band, to be shown this respect...what an incredible gesture. A class act. Me? I was so transfixed by this moment that I missed my chance to shake his hand. But I got the picture.
