MICK JAGGER/ROLLING STONES: JFK STADIUM (September 25, 1981)

How to shoot a photo of Mick Jagger’s crotch

  1.  Fight your way through thousands of people to get a position close to the stage.
  2. Wait at least four or five hours before the Stones take the stage, surrounded by pushing, shoving, drunks and people also angling for a closer position.
  3.  Carry a milk crate past security and stand on it, as people are dancing, screaming,knocking you off balance every time you raise your camera.
  4.  Wipe the sweat out of your eyes whenever you have a chance so you can focus the lens.
  5.  Try not to dance with the Rolling Stones music blasting from the massive sound towers a few feet away to your left.
  6.  Get lucky as hell when Mick Jagger decides to squat right in front of you and look into your lens.
  7. Maintain your concentration and release the shutter with all the correct exposure controls set
  8.  Don’t think about anything..shoot as many frames as possible while he’s right there, and before the crowd knocks you over as they attempt to shake Jagger’s hand.
