Frankie Valli at Manchester 26th June 2015

27 Jun 2015 12:25AM   Views : 807 Unique : 499

We are just back from a fantastic show, with 81-year-old Frankie Valli defying time and delivering the goods without so much as a falter. His voice is still amazing and of course we had our cameras to capture some of the atmosphere.

Large DSLRs are pretty much out, they seem to scare the promoters for some reason, but compact cameras generally seem to be tolerated. Of course some of these are now rather good cameras, and my Pentax MX-1 is one of them. I dialed in -1EV exposure compensation and set an ISO value of around 1600 to 3200. This is not likely to offer the best quality, but it's the atmosphere that counts. In the event I was quite pleased with the quality of the images, so let's have a look at some of them, hot off the press, so to speak.
