Concert Photography – SixtyFour

Taking pictures of a concert aren’t easy. It requires fast glass and access. Recently I have met some wonderful people who just happen to be incredible musicians. SM invited me to a gig for the Beattles cover band he is a part of, SixtyFour. It was a small venue, a local wings bar, and a fun crowd of the older generation who danced to the tunes of their youth. The lighting was good, but not great. Once thing I have found is that the multicolor lights and various textures and elements often on a stage can be distracting. Solution: convert to black and white. For example, this is a nice image in color. Steve is crisp and clear, the Corona neon looks nice, and overall not a bad image.

But in B&W it has mood and character that the color just doesn’t have.

In the end, it is personal choice, but I like the black and white so here is a selection from the evening.

Remembering Mack

I have not posted on the PhotoBlog for the last few weeks. Our son Mack died unexpectedly on New Year’s Eve from a blood infection. Today is his 9th birthday. He will be missed, but I wanted to remember him in some of the photos that I have taken.
