I was very happy to be invited to a Rock and Roll show last Saturday the 22nd in downtown San Jose by the lovely Nehal Abuelata. Nehal performed with Sweet HayaH at the Ritz located at 400 S First Street at the Grrrl Scene #2 with Snakeskin, Wallace, and Mother’s Worry. Grrrl Scene #2 was a focus on the ladies of Rock and Roll and presented a very different type of line up, with all of the groups that performed offering a different style of music. I really enjoyed each group, and I was able to see some really good live music. I would love to go to Grrrl Scene #3 in the future, sign me up now please.
With the event focusing on the ladies, I wanted to do the same thing with my camera. I really like the results, and I thought the lighting at the venue gave me some nice color in my photos. Because I focused on the ladies as a group, and not each individual group that performed, I chose to present the images as one large group of photos. So all of the images are shuffled and in no particular order. This is the second show I have photographed at the Ritz and I used my Sony NEX-5R with the 18-55 mm lens again because it is small and convenient, but gives me strong results. I am seeing the NEX-5R giving me nice clean images in low light conditions.
Big Giant Thank You to ….
