Post your very best Guitarist capture w name & reason...:D

This is Travis Tritt,.. America's best kept secret...Country rock, country, bluegrass, love ballads, guitarist and sensational vocalist...He is a powerhouse of energetic entertainment...

To the rest of the World, FYI: Travis has many Platinum records under his belt...

I chose this picture, because of the colorful background, and Travis Tritt in action (with his studded leather jacket off).

I think it is a very good shot...the only thing that would stop me from making it a "great guitarist" shot is you didn't get the entire guitar.

You know taygull,

I, first thought of the guitar neck needing to be clearly visible and in focus...later, all I keep remembering is this "eye candy" colorful background...and his show was so dynamic, I really felt the need to post him in this fashion...
This particular moment's lighting at the venue, just didn't afford me the depth of field required, to present a completely focused "guitar and performer" scenario...But Travis is just so strong a vocalist and superb guitarist, I just had to use this colorful shot for simply, the general eye appeal...

I don't disagree except I think the only thing that NEEDS to be in focus is the face. As a concert shooter I think it is "understood" that due to shooting wide open parts of the performer or his instrument may be out of focus.

One of the things I like about my favorite Vince shot is it is pretty close to be all in focus because he was facing straight on during the shot.

The shot above is a very nice shot...I think you could even bump the saturation a touch and make it look even more vibrant.

I do enjoy Travis and his music.

Yup, I wondered if the face in this photo is in the best focus possible...Maybe it's my eye glasses that I need to have checked...

I found that sharpening this photo brought out more of a grainy finish to the drums...Unless those are glitter flakes in the drum finish, frankly taygul, I can't tell...

Travis Tritt, was just flying by me horizontally across the stage, and much of the time, focusing on him was just a general area type of thing...

In the mean time, I'm wondering if anyone will take the time to retrieve some great, creative images of guitarists in action, for posting...I have a couple of other rock band guitarist's pictures in mind for adding to this thread...

taygul,

There were only two Auto Focus Points on, in this picture. One is on his sideburn/cheekbone and the second was on, in the air above his head...go figure...

When processing this photo, I considered these two Auto Focus Points...and assumed the lens and camera did it's job...and that PP sharpening would adjust the marginal distance from his cheek to the profile of the nose...

It looks pretty close to me...however the distance from the camera, to him was approx. 15 feet...at f1.8, there should be enough depth of field for plenty of room for sharpness...

I didn't say this was OOF, at f1/8 though your DOF is going to be very small.

Do me a favor...if you don't mind...shoot me an email with the large jpeg. I'd like to do my standard post process and see if it looks much different than what you have here.

I'm about to leave for the night but will check it when I get home.

here's a shot i've not posted before, as i shot the event for a mag (ended up not getting on the list and had to pay, but that's another story...), which should be back from the printers very soon. i like this shot because it's ultra-crisp, gets the details of the battered and weathered guitar (this was their 1st US tour ever, 30 years or so after they started, and they pretty much stopped playing in 1978 or so), and shows Deniz' determination to make you rock yr goddamn socks off. he definitely managed that.

Great shot narlus,

He looks intense as probably his guitar playing is...

Now if I can only remember which one I did what to.

All I really did on this one is just a little Noise Ninja and use the Manyk SRS tool to resize and sharpen.

IMAGE: http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m16/taygull/bIMG_3834.jpg

The other I selected the background added a little noise, blurred and added a little saturation and vignette.

I don't know if it made much of a difference.

This is my favorite...funny thing is it is of me. I set up the shot and had a friend take it on our trip to Nashville a couple of years ago. It was with a simple point and shoot.

I have done very little concert photography and this is one of the few guitarist shots I have. I like it a lot though, mainly for the expression on her face that indicates she is far off in a world of her own. This is Marliese Botha, bass player of South African band Cutting Jade.
