Rock on

A little bit of a change of pace today.  If you follow my blog regularly, you know that I do some work shooting a band called Act of Pardon and have posted a couple different sets of them before.  A few weeks back I was in attendance as a fan of their music first and a photographer second.  Just because photography was second that night doesn’t mean that I didn’t come away with some pretty cool shots!  Here is a collection of a few of my favorites from the show.

I had to spend most of the show shooting at ISO 3,200 and with just a hint of noise reduction from Nik’s Dfine, you can’t even tell!

One thing that is great about the band is that they love fan interaction.  Here, a friend of the band has jumped up on stage and was enjoying the music, beer in hand!

Thanks for swing by today folks.  One more day until Friday.  See you all tomorrow!

    Nice shots Dave. I can almost hear the music. I am a big music fan but being a lot older than you, my tastes are probably different. I am a huge Springsteen fan and have 3 concerts lined up in March & April. I’ll bet I won’t be able to shoot Bruce…ReplyCancel

    You did a nice capture of the band! I shot indoors in low light and it’s not easy. I have a lot of respect for these photographers that do this for a living.ReplyCancel

    I think your concert photos have so much groove and spirit in them, it’s almost as I am attending myself. My favourite is probably the first one.ReplyCancel
