Shooting a young band at three locations ... and on the way to the third location ... they (the Band) gets busted for a Safety Check violation. lol
Isn't it a little "cliche" when a band drives around in a "piece of $hit" car?
So, we arrive at the last location that "had" nice light at sunset. I really wanted to shoot this natural light (the sun had dropped and the street lights was already on).
Well, what is interesting about my last shot was ... I did it at iso6400 , handheld at 1/30, 80mm, f2.8 ... I had lighting (my portable strobist stuff), so I did not have to shoot Natural light/high ISO. But, I had made up my mind I was going to do this all ambiant ... and here it is.
Only in LR , shot RAW ... NO Noise reduction at all ... so any grain in the shot, is what is there on the D700 at iso6400.
What was nice is ... I probably would have "added" grain , after the shot ... but instead , I did it with iso6400, no NR at all.
Here is the shot:
Here's the bust:
Note: notice the officer "Texting" while his partner is checking the reg and papers :) ... "Seriously?", really?. Wonder if he was checking out the bands Facebook page? maybe he was Friend-ing them. :)
Here's a shot from that location lol:
talking right at the spot of the bust ...
After this shoot. It was on to a Party by WSSM (Women's Surf Style Magazine) at Senor Frogs in Waikiki.
"Valentines Day" themed Party.
It's a tough job ... but, someone had to do it. lol
* Now, imagine the RAP song "Black and Yellow" blasting from the speakers ... standing room only ... and then you got the feeling. :)
It was a long day ... and that party was going past 2am ... but FUN.
Like I said before, It's a tough job, and someone had to do it :)
