It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll

Today’s picture was from a live music shoot that I did right before taking off to Colorado.  The band is Smokescreen – and the drummer Jesse is a very good friend of mine.  When I heard that they were playing within a reasonable distance of my house on a Saturday night, I made the trek to Lakeville with my camera to get some sweet live shots.  The guy in the picture is Chris – he’s one of the guitar players.

I continue to be amazed and fascinated at how well the Canon 5D Mark II does in low light.  I spent the entire evening at 1600+ ISO – and usually at 6400 ISO – and the noise is really well controlled.  I swear that it’s less than on my 40D at ISO 800.  Even the 6400 ISO shots were great – they just required a pass through Noise Ninja and they were good as new.

Vital Stats: Canon 5D Mark II w/Canon 135 f/2L + 1.4x II Extender   ISO 1600, f/2.0, 1/200 sec.
