Little Jake Mitchell (Lead Singer/Little Jake and the Soul Searchers)

This picture is perhaps unremarkable, unless you know the conditions under which it was recorded.

 

The space is an intimate local club into which the band (Little Jake and the Soul Searchers) had brought one light tree (stage right) with two ellipsoidal spotlights geled RED.

 

Most of the night the leader was way down front, with the main pool of light behind him, which made auto focus all but impossible. I had placed a speedlight with a foot 8-1/2 ft off the floor, on the beer cooler behind the bar. It was geled with two "True Blue" gels. The 580 EX's power was set to 1/16 and triggered via RF.

 

I only hope you find the result worth the modest effort.
