[mix]tape, from the Seacoast area of NH, was the second act, in the second half of the concert — and they made sure that you wanted ‘it’ to go on as long as possible. Lot of fun. Great signing, with panache, passion and some humor. They kept you engaged throughout. Huge amount of talent. Would like to see them again.

This was the ensemble, replete with percussion, that kicked off “Voices of the 603” 2017 concert — and what an act they were, ebullient and musically exemplary. Very uplifting. Got the concert off to a rousing start. I was not sure what to expect. They definitely got the adrenalin going and set me up for the night. As some of you know, after the years I spent as a ‘Clearlakes Chorale‘ ‘groupie’ I am no stranger to good choral music — and these ladies, and it is an all female chorus — impressed me much.

As promised yesterday, I am trying to make sure that I share some of the 340 photographs I took the concert last night.

Enjoy.

Is This A Fairly Decent Picture — Closeup Of A Concert Performer?

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. This is a low resolution version of the full-resolution, 6000 x 4000 pixel image I got with my Sony a6500.


I took this last night, at the ‘Voices of the 603‘ concert, with my under-used Sony a6500 and a Sony f/4.5-6.3, 55-210mm zoom. Lighting was not an issue at ISO 6400. So, I had a fair amount of leeway.This was at 1/200 at f/6.3. We were in the 2nd row. That was ‘OK’. With that lens I could have done with being another 6′ away.

Shooting performers, close-up, at concerts has always been something that holds appeal.

I got some ‘good’ ones last night — at least per my expectations and opinions.

What I am interested in is … what do YOU think?

Is this decent enough or did I fail?

Thanks.

There May Never Be A Sony a7 III; the a9 May Be The Upgrade Path!

by Anura Guruge

I can see the ‘Munda Logic‘ in this.

IF you want to stick with 24MP resolution, as I do, then upgrade to the a9 — pay the HUGE price difference even if you do not ever need 20fps shooting capability or two card slots.

IF you need more resolution go with the newly announced Sony a7R III.

There is some rationale to this.

What I was hoping was an a7 III with the Sony a7 body, Sony a6500 sensor and maybe some firmware from the a9.

A different perspective of “Castle In The Clouds” — which is now closed until May 2018. This was from the October 18, 2017 visit — our 3rd in 2017.

It is fun to try and visualize what views ‘they’ enjoyed out of these windows. I am sure I am not doing enough justice. Not as easy, getting it right — or at least not for I.

Enjoy. So, many more pictures of the “Castle” that I should post.

But, I wanted to get these out. Enjoy.
