Ray Manzarak - The Doors

By VicBarnes
2004 gig at the MEN Arena. Ray was a founder of the original Doors. Shot for Harley-Davidson (sponsor) but taken from the audience seats (a PR girl failed to get me proper accreditation). Exposure determined by a one degree Pentax spotmeter. Concert lighting. Plenty of scope for a montage but I don't do 'imaging'. I'm a hard-nut purist!

Well said,Vic.
Spoken like a professional..leave well alone.It's how it was,and how it should stay.
That's how we made a living from our trade..the truth in pictures.Otherwise,we would have been given the 'boot' a long time ago.

Editing is alright for cropping,adding or subtracting the image is down the pecking order for sincerity.
