Default The Pretenders @ the Orpheum Boston

ISO 800, f/2.8 - f/5, 1/100 - 1/400

Lots of light, but very spotty. A very contrasty design. My guess is the bright white downlight is so you couldn't really see Chrissie Hynde's face, in an attempt to keep you from realizing she's 57.

Here we go:

1


2


3


4


5 OOF or Motion Blur, or something, but I like the moment anyway.


6


7

Some very coarse noise for ISO 800....
What happened there?

It's mid day and the sun is very bright at my house... So I really can't see these pics very well... However, from what I can make out, the composition and subjects look real good...

The Pretender's will be performing this evening right down the road from me (10 minutes away)... I saw them last time they were here...

Good job.

not too bad...2 is a nice shot of the whole band. 6's good too, good capture. i like that you left room on the bottom (that her boot wasn't too close to the edge of the shot).

roman, looks to be a plexiglass (perspex) shield to protect the hearing of the performers from the drums...roger miller (mission of burma) has hearing problems and had peter prescott use one for his drum kit

Plexiglass isolation booths and shields are also used to keep the other mics from picking up the drums, which is a nightmare when trying to mix a band - especially if you're recording it.

Which they were doing. There were room mics everywhere. at the sound board. 2 each on either side of the stage. the drum kit was mic'ed up with more mics then they needed. every guitar amp was mic'ed with an e609 or SM-57 AND a shure KSM-44's!

Yeah, we've had those isolation barriers reflect into the audience and blind the whole first row! I think the sound is generally better when they use them as drummers rarely have a gentle hand ... nothing worse than having a rhythm section that drowns out everybody else like some hobby band! As for the older gals, they do seem obsessed with looking like they did when they were at the top of the charts.

Why the low iso? ISO1600 should give 1/1000 shutter speed for crisp frames ? even 3200.
