The Musician

By cambirder
This was from last nights performance by Show of Hands at Ely Folk Club.

I used this to test my new 85mm f1.8, and this shot was the most difficult of the night. Phil (Beer) was sitting at the back of the stage under the minimum lighting, and I honestly did not think I would get anything usable from it.

It certainly won't stand up to a great deal of enlargement but I love the compesition, so am rather chuffed with this one.

f1.8, 1/40th sec, ISO 1600

The repeat of the golden light on the stool legs and the guitar edge make this shot for me, nice work !

Super image throughout. Very atmospheric natural lighting & taken from an excellent angle producing fine details. You've caught the concentration on the artist's face very well indeed.
