The Hi-Balls

Mark Hooper and Jason Hale, from the band the Hi-Balls.

Carrying around two camera bodies, each with a different lens, has proven to be much more convenient than carrying one camera and constantly switching lenses. However, I still have to keep switching my one flash back and forth.  So, I guess I need two of those, too.

IMG_5264Hand held, manual focus, bounced flash. Post production in Photoshop: cropped the photo, then used the burn tool to burn in distracting neon beer signs. I also went around the edges of the photo with the burn tool, to burn in some distracting wires and “stage junk,” and also to create a slight vignetting, drawing attention toward the subjects. This also gave it a tiny bit of a spotlight feel, I think.
