Good noise

I’m about to begin three days of St. Patrick’s Day gigs with the band so a music oriented shot seems appropriate. This one was taken recently at a local Irish seisiún. The lighting was very dim so I put on a fast prime lens and set my ISO to “Auto” with a max range of 12800.

Wrangling the beast with lilies

With me and the 5D Mark III’s full-frame sensor it’s all a crap shoot, but I’m learning by going where I have to go. For the time being, depth of field is the challenge.
