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.

Jane Lee Hooker at The Bowery Electric, NYC

A small set of Jane Lee Hooker performing at the Bowery Electric on April 30th, 2015 in NYC. It happened to be lead singer Dana Danger’s birthday and I later learned she received a gold microphone as a gift; it shows up particularly well in the blue photos. Shot on the Nikon D4s with both the 14-24mm f2.8 and 24-70 f2.8 with minor adjustment in LR and the crops straight out of the camera.

BlueBonnets at Dogfish Head, Rehoboth, DE.

This set is from a show at the Dogfish Head in Rehoboth, DE. played on May 1st, 2015. The BlueBonnets shared the bill with Jane Lee Hooker (as they had for the shows during the previous November in NYC). Shot with the Nikon D4s with both the 20-35 f2.8 and the 14-24 f2.8.

BlueBonnets at Arlene’s Grocery, NYC

This is the companion set to the Rock Shop post from January 8th. Just as for that show, The BlueBonnets shared the bill with Jane Lee Hooker. Shot with a Nikon D4s and both the 24-70mm f2.8 and 14-24mm f2.8.

The BlueBonnets at The Rock Shop, Brooklyn

Here is a set of photographs from The BlueBonnets’ show at The Rock Shop in Brooklyn on November 8th, 2014. The photos were shot on a Nikon D4s with a 24-70mm f2.8 and converted to monochrome in PS. The BlueBonnets shared the bill with Jane Lee Hooker and after the show both bands wanted a group shot. Since the interior of the venue was dimly lit, we improvised with a shot in front of a window tinting shop down the block.
