SONIC SPELL

It seems that the winter months are my chance to photograph concerts and musicians. If you read my last post I photographed a band I didn’t even know existed. The image on this post is from the band that I originally planned on photographing. Sonic Spell  https://www.facebook.com/SonicSpell/  at the same venue Fish Head Cantina  http://www.fishheadcantina.com/ in Maryland.  Another low light condition concert with a fairly long lens. For me shutter speed is the key function.

THE DEAD PENS

I was out on Friday night to photography a band, which I did (images were taken at Fish Head Cantina, Maryland.    http://www.fishheadcantina.com/            In the process I discovered the opening act The Dead Pens  https://thedeadpens.com/?fbclid=IwAR2CEVatmzWUHNlJtZB-O0vYGx1Wp-SmjntoJ7e8_MOUISXx9HDKYuJL9zE

This is an image from that show – lead singer/songwriter guitarist and keyboard player Danah Koch. I’ve added the band website – I hope you’ll check them out.

Shot with my Nikon D800, I had to deal with some low light issues. My main plan while shooting concerts like this is to use shutter priority to freeze action and then use the auto ISO function to help with the low light.wDSC_9810.jpg


SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION

IMG_3810.jpgThis is a CD cover I had the pleasure of doing some technical support for. My part was creating extra pixels to the original image. (The images are not mine but, those of Chanté C. Ramsey of VySyn Photography http://vysynphotos.com/  . This is the newest release from singer/songwriter Lili Roquelin  http://www.liliroquelin.com/  – based in New York. I have had the pleasure of working with her many times in the past. Please give her music a listen – I’m sure you will enjoy her wonderful music and poetic lyrics.  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JB629G1/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1539365414&sr=8-6&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=lili+roquelin&dpPl=1&dpID=410PBTiqTUL&ref=plSrch

 


NICOLE IN BLACK

Shot this over the summer, it was one of those group meet up shoots. Nicole was dressed in this lovely black dress and hat. We were in a small park in Anne Arundle County, Maryland. Dusk was approaching and so too was the golden hour. I used my Nikon with a 35mm lens and 1 speedlight for fill. I was really ve

ry happy with the results.


GOLDEN HOUR

It was election night, and I was on assignment at the Baltimore Museum of Industry     http://www.thebmi.org/   While waiting for politicians and there supporters to arrive, the storm clouds over Baltimore began to breakup – just in time for the golden hour evening light to shine in.  I left the main building and went to the edge of the Inner Harbor off of Key Highway and waited with my Fuji X-E1, in the 16×9 image mode and captured this beautiful image.WBDSCF4917.jpg
