VALERIE JUNE

I recently picked up a Nikon Z6, and took it for it’s first concert shoot – Valeria June  http://valeriejune.com/  a really fun show by the way, and a rare solo performance. Great way to shoot with the 24-70mm lens (not a crappy plastic lens either). Anyway – I had the opportunity to use the silent mode. Which comes in handy at an interment concert.

The images are the jpegs straight out of the camera – no filters, no photoshop – just resizing and a watermark.

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.


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


CHIKARA MOTH

Heather aka Chikara Moth,  https://modelsociety.com/Model/chikara-moth?fbclid=IwAR1y37CpUzjCqCw3q_TiuyfRxBI2uiseYqIH0SL5T4g4dr2PL2Xv4fYT8no   dropped by the studio a month ago and we played with some fun studio lighting and saran wrap. Heather made a saran wrap dress – with a color collar. I played with 5 point lighting, 3 strobes one around the side and two in front one farther back than the other, daylight and some overhead fluorescent light.

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

 


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
