Well, so John's shooting again and teaching Ski all the stuff I failed to convey! Great set none-the-less.
Ski does have it together... He has his routine down pat, and picking something up along the way, doesn't hurt... He's open minded...
I do want to try his pattern metering method sometime... cause my spot metering on the face, was underexposing the rest of the musician.

cool to see shots from 2 different shooters from the same show. john, looks like you had stripped yr EXIF out...would have fun to compare exposures for both of you.
the lighting here looks to be rather dull; i hate the red/blue/magenta cans, and would probably just b/w the whole set (though 2 and 5 look pretty good). weird that the drummer wasn't on a riser.
Narlus, I posted the EXIF printed out "longhand" in my thread from this show... You're right about the lights... The "big" spot lights weren't used... probably cause of the heat they give off and the totally full house we had... I don't think our regular lighting maestro was at the controls... and I found the lights to offer few real good opportunities to get solid shots.

Yeah, but now I want to see Ski's picture of John!
I wonder if he did get a pic of me... He was using the short lens, when he would have had a better chance to get me... So it's unlikely.
