Finnish Chief Conductor of The Minnesota Orchestra Osmo Vanska caught during a performance of Sibelius Symphony No3.
hi simon.... oh the memories!!!! rudi
Lovely capture - good exposure and great expression.
Can I ask where you were to get this? It's official, I guess, as you were in a great position.
(sorry for my naivety - you're a pro, I assume :o/)
Lovely mono image, the expression and the lighting is great. The background is nicely out of focus
Such a fine black and white image Simon, the exposure is spot-on, impressive shot, Adrian
Hope this doesn't keep you awake too long tonight!
Kyd, yes I was in a good position behind the brass section for this concert.
It's not just Rudi! I haven't played for five years and it still makes me go funny! lol!
It's a shame that I wasn't interested in photography when I was playing - it would have been a wonderful companion.
What, when, where???
I would say this is a perfect B&W. Love those images you take of famous conductors from a priviledged position.
Simon - not pro, though my first paid job was in a pit orchestra at 13! Still makes me laugh!
A bit of pro-am freelance stuff in London and Oxford during my teens and twenties - not many trombones around so lots of work, some paid, some not.
Didn't pursue it as a full career for various reasons. Some good, some not! ;o)
Excellent study Simon. The 3rd is my favourite Sibelius symphony.
this is a cracking b/w study -
Another great Finnish conductor Osmo Vänskä : )
You already knew, what our very own Esa-Pekka Salonen´s future plans are and if not, check this LINK
SUPERB SHOT AGAIN, Simon!
Cracking light and action Simon. Ron.
Thanks for the link.
He is a great musician and the Philharmonia should suit him perfectly.
Thanks again for all your support.
Thank YOU, Simon!
This is perfect. Great candid, great lighting, great composition...
Perfect timing Simon with superb light and excellent detail!
to keep the detail in the whites with this type of shot ain't easy ... you've done it well
Great stuff, Simon. I love how you've just managed to get an impression of the audience in the gloom...
A stunning quality monochrome shot, i thought i had seen this before but looking back in your P/F i was mistaken it was another shot i was thinking about
Brilliant capture, delighted to be Click No 30
Great stance and light.
Simon, this is a great shot! It's intriguing and entertaining to read the dialogue above - isn't EPZ a great forum for more than photography!
I like how everything is so sharp, and then there is a touch of motion in the hand. Excellent. Especially under these lighting conditions.
