Ludo @ The Metro

Oh, Ludo. We’ve been to countless shows over the eight or nine years that we’ve been fans, and they never get old. How much do we love them? Last year, we couldn’t go to their Chicago show for their “Broken Bride” tour (which is one of my top 5 albums, ever I might add) because I was shooting a wedding, so the next day, we drove hours to see their show in Columbia, MO because we just couldn’t bear to miss it. Luckily, this time, while they’re out on tour for their new album Prepare the Preparations, we got to see them here. But, if we had to, we still would have driven several hours to see them. Because they’re worth it.

Shooting Notes

I love Metro for their history and their staff… but I walk out every time cursing their lighting. I was hopeful for this show, since The Graduate, who opened for Ludo, had decent lighting. However, it was not to be. But that’s okay. Ludo is a fun band, bright colors work well with them… I just had to work a little harder.

If you shoot Ludo, you want to keep both eyes open and have a wide-angle lens on hand. They’re crazy and will strike poses mid-song, often on the edge of the stage. And they’re definitely not camera shy. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
