Bloc Party @ The Concourse in San Francisco and cameras

    Newer Older

    (Project 365 Day 149)
    The ticket said "no camera or recorders", but flashes were going off all over the place. :P

    This really made me appreciate the shutter-priority mode on my Fujifilm F30. Even though it doesn't have full manual, the shutter-priority is useful in a case like this when I want to artificially shorten the exposure beyond what I could do even with exposure compensation set to -2. (The backlighting effect wreaked havoc with the auto-exposure. :P) I set this to 1/60 sec.

    (See also this other shot and their opening act.)

      Great timing with the lights - very atmospheric.

      great colours indeed. the fact that someone else is taking a picture at that same time is a nice touch.

      Love it, it shows some of the atmosphere :-) Now I regret even more I dodn't have my camera with me that day...
