Belinda Carlisle at B.B. King’s, NYC

This entry is from Belinda Carlisle’s solo show at B.B. King’s in NYC on September 8th, 2015 – 12 years after she had previously played there (a show which I shot on high-speed Kodak film – those slides might make an appearance for a Throwback post). Shot with the Nikon D4s and the 200mm F2 wide open at F2 with the 1.4x teleconverter for some shots. The wide shot was taken with the 24-70mm F2.8. Raw files converted in Nikon NX-D with finishing in PS.

From the archives – Go-Go’s at The Independent, S.F., 2007

This mega-entry goes back in time to October 5th, 2007 when The Go-Go’s played The Independent, S.F.. Shot on (now discontinued) Kodak T-Max 3200 with a Nikon F100 and 70-200mm f2.8, then scanned on a Nikon Coolscan 9000 with minor dust touch-up in PS. There have not been any digital effects added; the pictures are as they appear on the negatives. A companion color digital set exists but remains unassembled; perhaps it will come to light in the near future.

BlueBonnets at the Ridgefield Playhouse

This set is from the BlueBonnets recent east coast tour during which they opened for the Waterboys for select dates. Shot at the Ridgefield Playhouse on April 27th, 2015 with the Nikon D4s and the trusty 70-200mm f2.8 with processing in Nikon Capture NX-D and minor clean-up in PS.

Veruca Salt – Music Hall of Williamsburg – 2014

Veruca Salt fans were treated to a series of high energy concerts in 2014 featuring the original band line-up for the first time since 1997. This set is from the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn and was taken with the Sony RX-100 III point and shoot (replacing the disappointing Panasonic used on the TRL Philly set). The camera’s performance and handling in the difficult lighting conditions (low light and high dynamic range) was impressive. The photos are virtually straight out of the camera with adjustments and noise reduction in LR. Presented in the order taken with aspect ratios from the camera (vsbklyn-17 was shot at 16:9).
