Professional leprechaun

I had a crazy busy weekend of band gigs. On Saturday, before we started our first set, I had a few minutes to grab some shots. This one is of “Authentic Leprechaun” Anthony doing his thing. Nice guy, and apparently in demand for St. Patrick’s Day gigs. Not long after this shot was taken he was off to perform at another event.

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.
