CRACK THE SKY: Bands And Banding

I took the Nikon Z6 to it’s first major concert event, and I was smooth except for one flaw and to me it’s a big one. Banding. As I have posted before I like shooting with high shutter speeds during concerts. Blurring I something I want to be done on purpose, not because the camera says to.  Under certain concert lights and with high shutter speeds (which are digital – remember there is no mirror) the image comes out with lots and lots of horizontal bands. The only remedy I found so far is posting in Photoshop, no fun when there are 700 or more images.

With that said – enjoy these images from “Crack The Sky”  http://crackthesky.com/  an all acoustic show

LAKE STREET DIVE

I have had the pleasure of photographing Lake Street Dive,  https://www.lakestreetdive.com/ twice in 2018, both times in Baltimore, Maryland. The first time during the summer and the second just a few weeks ago. Enjoy the images, both sets were different photographically. One an outdoor venue the other indoor. The band has a wonderful light show that creates some challenges – a lot of very high and low light. As you might know I love a light challenge. The first two images are from the newest show and shot with my Fuji X-E1 and the second two were shot with my Nikon D-800.


MIKAELA DAVIS

Good Morning all.  Last week I went out to photograph Lake Street Dive (my second time, images coming soon) and has it’s been in the past I was thrilled to discover a musician I never heard of. This time it’s singer/songwriter Mikaela Davis. A total pleasure and surprise. These images were shot with my Fuji X-E1. I was shooting from the sound board, and used my 50-230mm lens. Using my usual technique of shooting with a shutter over 500 to help stop motion and auto iso to achieve maximum light. I also enjoy shooting in the 16×9 mode, giving a wonderful extra area to play with.


VINTAGE

Over the summer, model and fashion designer Stacy Stube and I did a series of images with vintage dresses. Shooting around Baltimore, Maryland. Part of the goal was to have the images be vintage in style. This is one of the black and whites – taken in the Mt. Washington section of town just feet away from the Washington Monument.wSSBWDSC_7411.jpg


CECILIA GRACE

Took a little time out to just relax. This is one of the latest concert image. Cecilia Grace  http://www.ceciliagracemusic.com/  – image taken at the Rams Head Live, Baltimore MD https://www.ramsheadlive.com/   holiday concert shot with my Nikon D800 from the photo pit (the smallest photo pit I’ve ever been in, and security gave me grief even with a photo pass).  I used a 200mm lens iso 2400. wDSC_0056.jpg

 


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
