Hitting the high note

By zcbts28  
My first attempt at taking photos at a concert. Last month some friends of mine were performing and i took advantage to try taking some pics. This was my favourite shot of the evening.

Excellent. So not just a new-comer to the photography genre, new-comers to the music scene too.

Very well shot, & converted.

I know that in the "old days" of film a lot used to use B&W film, mostly, I think, because it tended to be faster. I've always felt that what you gain in speed (& presumably in digital, noise control), you lose in atmosphere, as the lightshow is often as big a part & well planned as the rest of the show. Depends on the size of the venue of course. If this was one of those little sweat boxes all bands should start off in, then they probably didn't have more than a few sound-to-light units off to the side anyway.

Of course that's just my personal musings, & doesn't detract from the quality of this shot & it's excellent atmosphere. This is why I love singers & lead guitarists. You get all the felling & emotion on their faces as they do their thang.

The size of the venue is also well disguised. She could be in one of the aforementioned sweat boxes, or Yankee Stadium. Adds a little mystery to the atmosphere.

Well shot.
