Richard Gilewitz, fingerstyle guitar pro (who lives here in Florida so he's sort of a local) and Tim May, Nashville-based flatpicking wizard, doing a wonderful gig in Jupiter Florida last weekend. 6D plus 70-300L @76mm and @ISO 5000

It was. They are both really top-flight guitar players with different styles. Tim works mostly in Nashville, but has toured a lot. Richard tours a lot all over the world. But they occasionally do shows together and their disparate styles blend well together. And they fill their shows with great humor and off-beat funny stories. I've known Richard for a number of years and now Tim. And a local duo we are both very fond of was the opening act. And the best part, was that for the last part of the show my wife joined them with her keyboard and voice. It was great. The fourth person with the sunglasses is the host of the event, it was a benefit for his dolphin research program.

Doesn't get any better than that! Thanks for sharing. Prompted me to search them out and see what's out there, very talented...

They are. Tim has won awards in Nashville, he's amazing. And his wife is a world-class fiddle player, mostly in the bluegrass genre. And a lovely gal too, I met her a couple of years ago. A real power couple in music.

BTW the 6D plus the 70-300L is a great combo for live music. Not as fast as a 70-200 2.8 (which is on my want list for live music and wildlife) but a great combo anyway, I have taken hundreds, maybe thousands of live music images with that combo. The lens also works well with my 5DIV, but I am still sort of in the learning curve with that body.

I just wish the lens wasn't white, it is too obtrusive when I am trying to be stealthy at a show. I am thinking about the Tamron 70-200 2.8 G2 as an addition, and it is black!!! A big plus for live music stealth mode....

PS those images (I took a LOT) came out pretty nice for ISO 5000, I thought.....

Yes I agree your 6D did excellent in the low light at 5000 ISO. I will say that it is outperforming my 5DsR for that purpose. I've been shooting a lot with some faster primes that are spoiling me. f/1.2 & f/1.4 are So much faster than even f/2.8 that I struggle with anything slower, 4 to 6 times more light is a lot over an f/2.8 and 8 to 10 times over f/4.0 is astronomical in very low light situations. You might prefer your 70-300 over the 70-200 for wildlife, usually there is enough light outdoors and the extra focal length may be more important. I prefer my 100-400 over the 70-200 for wildlife work. Regardless your shots of these artists are fantastic! Can't wait to see more...

Thanks for the input. Agree with you. I also have been using an 85 1.8 for some of the photos when I can get close enough. Some more fast primes would be great although I am not sure I want to carry them all around with me!

As for wildlife I have other lenses than the 70-300 for that, so the extra reach isn't as big an issue for those shoots. I also use the 100-400 which overlaps the 70-300 by all but the first 30mm......

The 6D for me just hits the sweet spot for music photos. The only issue I have with it is that when I move the focus points around while shooting I frequently activate all the focus points by accident and then have to reset the points to single. Something about the placement and function of the buttons. Otherwise I like the ergonomics of the 6D actually better than the others. This is likely because I am left-handed and it just feels natural for me where they placed the controls.

Here is the opening act, some friends of mine who have a local duo and are quite excellent. This is the 5DIV and the 85 1.8 from behind them. Converted in LR to BW. ISO 3200. They were delighted with all the images, especially this one.

Wow that 85mm is perfect for this effect. I have to remember to stop the f/1.2 down to f/1.8 or it actually blows out too much of the background to where you can't tell what's out there, especially in B&W. It seems there is so much overlap between the 70-300 and the 100-400 I'm not sure I'd use them both.

This was @ f2. The 85mm 1.8 is turning out to be a nice lens at a reasonable price. Only thing it lacks is IS. And a lens hood!! I keep forgetting to order one. Of course the lack of IS keeps the lens nice and light and compact, which is a major plus. I am getting attached to it. It was an impulse purchase that seems to be working out well.

Here's a couple shots of a local Judas Priest tribute band Judas Rising. The singer told me this was one of his all time favorite pictures ever taken of him.

Here's a couple of singer Ashley Yarnell from an Iron Maiden tribute band called Number of the Beast. If you look closely in the bottom right hand corner of the second picture you can see the drummer peeking through the drum kit looking at me lol
