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.

A little too stoned

After a gig in Berkeley, I happened upon this unfortunate guy and his friends. What to do?? I took a picture. (I’m sure he survived.) The image is straight from the camera at ISO 6400–no processing of the RAW file other than resizing and a tad of sharpening.
