Some more concert images this week – sorry I’ve been so busy lately with no chance to post. This is Ruut https://www.facebook.com/ruutmusic/?epa=SEARCH_BOX https://www.ruutdemeo.com/music?fbclid=IwAR2yU4FafS0rMc8yHcXcd1eCahQvfm9xvd99NHoHaB8cjGdKeoDnIcUCONQ a singer/songwriter whose work I have enjoyed for years. The performance was deep in the woods on a cool spring night at the fabulous Thorpwood http://thorpewood.org/
A wonderful magical small gathering for a solo performance.
Once again playing more with the amazing Nikon Z. I am totally in love with this camera’s ability to create images in low light. This was obviously not a time for any flash or external light source.
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.
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.
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.
