A fresh set of pictures from Veruca Salt’s concert at Webster Hall, NYC on July 31st, 2015. The show was in support of their new album, “Ghost Notes”, released this July. Taken with the Sony RX 100 III point & shoot in ARW RAW and processed in LR.
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).
During the summer of 2014, the original line up of Veruca Salt performed a small set of east and west coast dates. These photos were taken at The Theater of Living Arts in Philadelphia on July 22nd, 2014 with a Lumix DMC-ZS40 point and shoot. I was a bit disappointed with the camera’s handling and low-light performance and left the set alone back then. After looking through them again, I liked the motion blur and some of the effects produced by the sensor in the difficult low-light conditions and decided to put together this set. Shot in Panasonic RAW at 1600; the only post-processing was a bit of noise reduction.
