  • Had another music night last weekend ...


    G'day all

    At our local club, this NZ group did an evening of Fleetwood Mac. Here are a couple of my memories

    1)- the stage is set

    exif- Panny FZ-300; F2,8 x 1/200s; ISO-1600; lens at 3x zoom / 70mm FFequiv

    2)- Keyboard + Guitar

    exif- Panny FZ-300; F2,8 x 1/160s; ISO-1600; lens at 14x zoom / 350mm FFequiv

    3)- Lead guitar

    exif- Panny FZ-300; F2,8 x 1/60s; ISO-1600; lens at 14x zoom / 350mm FFequiv

    4)- Lead singer

    exif- Panny FZ-300; F2,8 x 1/400s; ISO-1600; lens at 24x zoom / 600mm FFequiv

    5)- Lead singer-2

    exif- Panny FZ-300; F2,8 x 1/400s; ISO-1600; lens at 21x zoom / 525mm FFequiv

    ps- camera to centre-stage distance approx 12m / 40ft
    As always, feedback welcome
    Phil

    I could hear them singing. I wasn't keen on the bright colour but removing that causes it to loose something. Saw Fleetwood Mac in the Hunter valley not that long ago.

    Better a full bottle in front of me
    than a full frontal lobotomy.

      Not to worry. When I do a correction on an image with huge colour cast like this one, I use blurr average. Copy layer and go to Filter ~ Blurr ~ Average. Invert the layer and set blend mode to Colour. Then Opacity 50%. I wrote an action for it and it works well.

    Well caught Phil. I do prefer the high colour versions, it kinda gives some of the ambiance of the moment, to me anyway..

    You were brave with 1/400 sec. The ISO compensated very well...

      Thanks fellas

      WB issues with an event such as this are a minefield of difficulty. I have found that all I can do is use AWB and hope for the best
      With coloured spots sweeping the performers on stage and their faces not always in 'clear light', it is hard
      I have had better results in another venue using WB= daylight, but while that gave a better face colour, the rear decorative stuff than looked funny too

        An excellent set Phil. The first two are my picks here. #1 for the lights framing the performers and #2 for the light and attractive background, although it doesn't quite have the atmosphere of the others.

        I don't mind the colours but sometimes it is just a matter of toning them down a little rather than trying to correct them.
