Freeze!

THE JOURNEY CONTINUES...


For me. the best part of a concert is when a carefully crafted plan works, and you get "that" shot.

You know the one, after which, your heart stops pumping at an abnormal pace, and you even start to strut up and down the auditorium,.... "Who's da man", ...I can hear you shout...skee skee skee! ;-). ( I dream big )

SKEE'S CONCERT TIPS
When I'm doing a concert, I make sure that I learn the lyrics of the artist's popular tracks, if they have any video I also get myself to go through the rigours of learning even the dancesteps. As they sing, I sing, as they dance, I dance, and as they do the spectacular, I snap. I don't miss!

The above shot was taken in the Hammersmith Apollo theatre in London in october 2005 of Christian singer/songwriter Nicole C. Mullen, the 2001 Song of the Year Dove Award for her sweeping ballad of faith, "Redeemer". She is the first African American to win in that prestigious category.

Ready set.....FREEEZE!

Nice one!
Looks like fun! Any chance of accompanying you as a photographer on one of this assignments? Or is the requirement for entry a 5D? wink
Mr Skee: Yep... no tiny cameras allowed ;-) Joking....this was taken with a 10D

Mr Skee: I only wish I had taken it with a 5D not a 10D :-(. Anyway more oppertunities will come, it's still early in the year!

uhmmm.... wat difference would the 5D have made??
Mr Skee: It definately would have enabled me to get a better shot, the 10D is a beautiful camera, but here it was being push to its limits. I would have been able to not only use a higer iso level say iso1600 but also obtains a richer dynamic range in terms of colour, a sharper image and also a large image that would have given e more flexibility in use i.e cropping etc. A would have love to make this into a A2 poster
