[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.

“Voices Of The 603” Concert, Concord, NH, October 27, 2017 — In 30 Pictures (Part I).

Our first time to a ‘Voices of the 603‘ concert — and I gather this is the 8th year; it being an annual event involving some school choirs.

Devanee was participating with a Prospect Mountain High School choir — the ‘Treble Choir‘. That was why we were there.

I did not know what to expect. I was blown away. It was very, very good. Dynamite. Amazing value for $15. I would have paid 4 times that for that concert. Some inspired and inspiring performances. The adult performances, without exception, were outstanding. The kids were great too. Some better than others, this also being a judged competition.

I took 340 pictures (with my Sony a6500). Other than pictures of Devanee (that I as a parent can publish) I have decided NOT to publish any of the pictures involving ‘kids’ — even the young adults from Anselm College. The ‘new’ privacy laws pertaining to publishing kids pictures online are such that it is EASIEST just to refrain. I do not want to deal with any aggravation. I am going to try and get the pictures to the kids in some manner — through the schools.

So here is the program showing the performances included in the above pictures. I will, with luck, post more. I will TRY and get some of the pictures to the adults too via their Websites or Facebook. Contact me, if you want some of these pictures. NO CHARGE! My contact information is easy to find!

I had to crop the images to make sure
that nobody else could be seen —
because of privacy concerns.

With the ‘new’ privacy laws when it comes to kids it is getting too complicated to take pictures at events like this — even if they are teenagers, and it is a public event. So, I don’t bother. I take a few pictures of kids I know so I can send them to their parents. I try to take some of mine. At this concert Devanee was perfectly hidden from our view for all the concert. These two peek-a-boo shots were the best I could do.

Lack Of A Silent Shutter On The Sony a6000 Is A Real ‘Show Stopper’.

Never occurred to me that a modern mirrorless, from Sony no less, would not have an electronic silent shutter. Had assumed it was a standard feature …

Well, I found out to my cost, that the Sony a6000, does NOT have a silent mode when I took it to the “Clearlakes Chorale” concert last weekend.

I planned to be at the concert 30 minutes early so as to get our preferred front-row pews. So I was going to set silent mode during the wait — I never having looked for silent mode previously on the a6000.

I couldn’t find it. There was an ‘audio’ option but that didn’t silence the shutter. I went through all the menus multiple times. NADA. I was amazed. Thought I was missing something.

I had, however, taken my trusty Nikon P900 as well and that did have a silent mode. So that was fine. I used the Nikon …

But, the Sony a6500 I plan to get in the next 8 weeks does have silent mode, as does the a6300.
