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.
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.
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.
