Pat posts his Blue Man Group concert pictures to PentaxForums!

I caught the Blue Man Group concert in Albany NY sunday night. I am a huge fan of the Blue Men, and had 5th row center tickets, so of course I had take a ton of pics!

The challenge is shooting with uneven lighting, lots of light/dark alternating lights, strobes, smoke and the photographer dancing along to the awesome music Most pictures are without flash and at ISO 1600 or 3200. Camera in appreture priority mode at f4. Lense is DA 50-200. Obviously most are grainy due to high ISO and colour balance is right out eh window due to stage lighting!

They are playing the "Drumbone"

In this one, it's the "PVC" instrument

Paint drumming!

I love the reflections off his "disco ball suit"

They look like they are having a great time!

Now THATS a drum!

man I love that album! And your photos are as crisp and engaging as the music!. I hope to see them one day. I'm kicking myself for not going to see them when they were playing on Lafayette St. in NYC in what was that, late 80s early 90s? I remember walking in once wanting to buy tickets with my girlfriend who became my wife; but I was young and poor @ that time, so we left. :ugh:
