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.
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.
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.
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.

A few weeks ago I was working on a project. A fashion film project, called Lotus. In between shots with video, I also shot stills. It was one of those locations you never have access to – The Catacombs under Lexington Market, Baltimore Maryland http://lexingtonmarket.com/ http://lexingtonmarket.com/event/baltimore-heritage-tour-of-lexington-market-catacombs-100-year-vendors-and-history-at-lexington-market/
Costuming was done by Stacy Stube https://www.elsafitzgerald.com/ Model in this image is Megan and Hair and Makeup (H/MUA) was Samantha Trionfo http://samanthatrionfo.wixsite.com/makeup-artist
Took a day to just drive around with the cameras and go to some spots I’ve never been to and some places I should have shot long ago. It was a beautiful day – sun, warm, big fluffy October clouds, just enough wind. This one image is from Rocky Point Waterfront Park https://www.baltimorecountymd.gov/Agencies/recreation/countyparks/mostpopular/rockypoint/index.html
in Baltimore County. Shot with my Nikon D800 on a tripod.
