Steve Lockwood

By abel  
playing at the 'World Class Blues Event', 07 May at the Ent Shed, Bedford ...

Exposure was at ISO 640 - 1/60 sec @ f2.8 - lens (as you can well imagine) mounted on a sturdy tripod!

Thanks for looking - all views and constructive comments very much appreciated!

Really fantastic shot. Will try your method at Blues on the farm in Chichester in Jun.

Don't know how you keep up with the action using a tripod. Personally I like to be more mobile, as the bands usually are. I wouldn't discourage it though, whatever works for you, the shot is the most important thing.

An excellent poartrait, as good as if you'd set it up in a studio.

Belated thanks for your comments ... Grin

Davey, half the time I use a monopod, but for the 70-200 I tend to tripod mount the lens and be patient, lol ... that said, Steve is a bit of a ducker and diver when he's performing, so it took a while to get this!
