Country Concert
Posted By: paulsoucy, 11-04-2008, 01:08 AM

Hi Everybody,

Been awhile since i've posted anything up in here..... I've been crazy busy, thought I would pop in here and post some photos of a concert I shot recently...

THe artist is Tracy Byrd ( for anyone that knows country his most famous song is probably "Watermelon Crawl" )

The guy in the black jacket was his surprise opener that happens to be John Rich from the band Big N Rich who is also famous for another huge hit called "Save a Horse Ride A Cowboy"

Anyways feel free to comment on the photos..... I shot all these with manual flash, my K10, Tamron 28-78, and Pentax 50 1.4 / I also shoot more often directly into JPG format now, I have found that lowering the contrast 1 stop to the left of center, keeping saturation right in the middle and moving sharpness 2 stops to the right produces really good images suitable for printing and also making adjustments easily in camera raw later...

Some sights of the club the concert was at

Some of the meet and greet

John Rich from Big N Rich

Concert Stuff / some of these photos have evident noise, what can I do? I tried to hide it as much as possible but I had to give myself depth of field and shutter speed to freeze the action... it is here I wish I was using something like a K20 for the extra stop of low noise advantage or a d90/d700/or D3.... for the 2 or 3 stops...

and ok not technically the day of the concert but another one of that blonde model up above that works at the club... ( totally for the guys ) : ) shot from the event on Halloween...

Agreed. Agreed.
Great series captured. It's harder than it looks to create images like that.
And yep, that last one's stunning - the lighting makes it all happen.
