One Rockin' Night.......

We set out to raise money for Haiti and Convoy of Hope and boy did we ever!!!  Common Grounds Coffee House was PACKED wall to wall and front to back!  There were NO seats available!  The best part was we raised $1088.00 for Convoy of Hope!  That will buy a ton of meals for the people who need it most right now!!

I had so much fun!!  Yes, I sang and no I did not get any photos or video of myself but I did take some cool concert photos!!  These were all shot without flash using a Sigma 50mm f1.4 lens!  This primary lens is my go-to gal for low light situations and she did not disappoint this time either!  I wanted to make sure to capture the mood that was set with the blue lighting on the artists while capturing the window of the coffee house and the lighting outside from traffic lights and passing cars! 

Here is the info for all the photos: 
Focal Length: 50mm
ISO:  400 (added to the edgy look of the photos!  One time when grainy is OK!)
Aperture:  f 1.4
Speed:  1/50 sec.

Now on to the photos of some great young artists!!

I am not sure of the names of the guys in the last two photos but they were a couple of my favorites shots from the night!!   The last photo is my absolute favorite!!  It was a great night for a great cause and I was just humbled by the response!

Love the photos. Do you experiment with different textures before you decide? Or do you decide and just go with it? Glad it went well.
