Portugal. The Man @ Space 15 Twenty

Alright, so here's the deal. I don't shoot live shows with flash. I have my reasons and if you wish to partake in an epic debate about why I should, I'll gladly oblige your request. That being said, in order for me to obtain sharp images, I use my handy ST-E2 flash transmitter which allows me to focus as if it were day. I happened to forget that nifty little device at my place before heading out.

 

To make matters worse, this performance had little to no lighting (for good reason) as they were projecting motion pictures on the wall behind the artists. You can imagine my frustration as I was sorting through my photos to find less than a quarter were sharp.

 

All this taken into account, it was still an absolutely amazing performance by one of my favorite group of artists out there.

 

Check out the video here.

 

Quick facts:

554 images shot.

of the 554, 127 were usable.

of the 127, 54 were 'good'.

of the 54, 10 were 'excellent'

of the 10, i picked 5.
