DESCRIPTION:  In my post yesterday I mentioned the first concert that I photographed was Neil Young. For now, that stands as a fact but it was over 30 years ago, so as I slowly dig through my archives, that might change. 😎 One of the things I'm really loving about Instagram is that it's giving me opportunity to do something I've never really done - retrace my steps. For this show I didn't have an actual photo pass; as I recall, I simply walked into the show with my camera casually tucked away in my jacket. I wouldn't recommend trying this now as security measures were different in those days. I had a 3rd row seat and I snapped away a couple rolls of 12 frame Kodak Gold 400. I also remember Neil looking directly at me a few times; in a wise effort to not irritate him, I would shoot a few frames, put the camera away for a song and then discretely shoot a few more. Here's a flatbed scan of an 8.5 x 11" print of Neil Young on the Live in a Rusted Out Garage With Crazy horse Tour at Cobo Arena in Detroit on Oct. 11, 1986.

All photogaphs are printed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag® Deckle Edge 308 gsm, produced using Ultra Chrome HD inks from Epson. The final print will also be delivered with a Hahnemühle Certificate of Authenticity. The Hahnemühle certificate system was designed to protect the security and genuineness of your limited edition art work and to reduce the risk of forgery. Each certificate is made of premium deckle edged mould made paper with a Hahnemühle watermark and fluorescent security fibres. A serialized numbered hologram is affixed to the certificate. A second, identically numbered hologram is then applied to the artwork. Additionally, both the certificate and print are embossed with Richard Beland Photography Inc.’s lightning bolt and star logo. The combination of certificate and hologram assures that each Certificate of Authenticity relates to one particular piece of art.

Each image is printed, signed and numbered by Richard. Richard has 25 years of traditional and digital darkroom printing. Whether the original photograph is from a digital scan of a negative or transparency or the photograph has been made with a digital camera, great care is taken to ensure that the contrast, density and colour have been corrected to maximize the potential of each image.
