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.

Last night Maggie and I joined some friends and fellow musicians for an Irish seisiún at the Aqus Cafe. Maggie brought her accordion, but I left my guitar at home and brought a camera instead. The space was relatively dark so I put on my 85mm f/1.8, cranked up the ISO and went for it. Here’s a shot of my friend Scott working his instrument.
