A few weeks ago I went to the Kiss concert in Sandy, UT and they only had half of the stadium filled. Instead of sitting in my assigned seat I hung out towards the back of the stadium opposite of the stage and was able to take some photos with my 60D. I got some okay shots of the stage but, when I wasn’t photographing the security guard (who asked to have his photo taken, lol) I also had some random fun with the in-camera filters. I think the miniature-effect, as seen used in the photo in this post, is going to end up being my overall favorite.

    Did you apply it to a shot of the band to create your own mini-KISS? :)

    That’s really nicely seen and processed! It took me a while in PS what now is just a change in the settings of a camera:
