Day 5 – Michaelson/Kearney

8 Apr

I am kind of cheating today because while I took the photo I didn’t take it today. I was cleaning off all of my memory cards and forgot that I had yet to download the photos I took when I went to see Ingrid Michaelson and Mat Kearney last week and I just had to share. This was not only one of the best concerts I have been to, this is what I would love to do for a living. No, not sing and believe me you don’t want to hear that, but go to live shows and take photographs. I would be happy living my life that way!

Indoor concerts are probably the worst lighting situation for any amateur photographer without those fantastic lenses I covet on a daily basis, but if you can find your settings there are hours of photographs waiting to happen. The only downside is that when you feel like you have the shutter speed just right, the ISO set and are ready to go they change the lighting and you have to start all over again. If you are really lucky you will get a lighting friendly venue that seems to be in tune with exactly what you need including soft white spot lights and every corner of the stage is lit up but if you are very unlucky the whole show will be washed in red lighting like you are walking the streets of Amsterdam.

This is just one of the many shots I got that night because the whole show was filled with “moments” so I hope you guys enjoy this little taste of what I got to see. I imported the photo into photoshop and converted it to black and white because I am a sucker for a black and white photo.

Ingrid Michaelson & Mat Kearney

In case you are interested, here is a video I took of Michaelson singing a cover of “Toxic” It was fantastically hilarious.

    What a great shot Mindy. Black and white just highlights the beauty in a picture doesn’t it? Nice touch πŸ˜€

    These PHOTO BLOGS are a fantastic idea. I’ve always been a sucker for B&W. It’s all about the shadows…
    (Can you imagine having a job, that would be that fun, every day?)

      Bill I really can’t even imagine how happy I would be doing that for a living LOL πŸ™‚

      Thank you for reading the blog and commenting, you are a sweetheart and I think B&W photos are just gorgeous. They add so much and it is just so classic and beautiful.

    Okay,let’s not get carried away here! You know I’m not a fan of “everything looks better in black and white” because I love color. But, I will say some pictures just pop in black and white, and this one surely does.
