Amanda Palmer connects with her fans in The New York Times

Amanda Palmer of The Dresden Dolls celebrated her record breaking kickstarter campaign at The Loft in Brooklyn with her band Grand Theft Orchestra and her husband Neil Gaiman and a large group of adoring fans.  The gallery has some of the pictures that got away and didn't run in the article published June 6, 2012 including this portrait which I love. This was a single strobe with soft box off to the left on a remote cord and a long exposure to catch the ambient light bouncing off the water tower silos behind her. I felt like they added a Bladerunner aspect to the image and love the effect.
