This was a fun but challenging shoot due to the lighting. With the stage being powered off the grid by bicycles, the lumens were kept to a minimum. In some respects the surrounding street lighting looked brighter! Contrast was helped at times by a strobe light placed at the foot of the stage, but I didn’t try for any multiple exposure effects like at their indoor shows.

The low light situation was helped by managing to get a good position at the front of the stage, allowing me to use the stage floor to stabilize at least my body movement. Getting a bit caught up in the moment, I didn’t realize until I got home that I didn’t have image stabilizing engaged, which may have offered some additional assistance with camera shake. Although I can’t resist wondering what “might have been,” I should recognize I got some satisfying results while practicing good technique. And in some cases a bit of blur and movement is more interesting.
