Underneath the sky so blue
The title is a bit of a joke… the sky was anything but blue. It was a blustery spring day with a deep cloud deck and a crisp (meaning cold) breeze. The words are a part of lyrics from a song titled ‘Live Forever’ on Drew Holcomb and the¬†Neighbors¬†newest album titled ‘Chasing Someday’.
This was my second time providing audio support for Drew and Ellie. I have done thousands of gigs through the years, and it is refreshing to come across musicians as pleasant as Drew & Ellie. If you don’t have this album, head to iTunes or Amazon and get it. I promise – its great!¬†Don’t believe me? Check out this¬†exceptional music video from the new album.
This shot was snapped during a cool portion of the concert where Drew and Ellie shared the mic. Good stuff. I took this one hand-held and at a slower shutter speed. They were lit with a single 250 watt¬†halogen¬†work light¬†about 15 feet away. There was still light from the sky, but the sun was already starting to set. It was not bright at all. To compensate, a high ISO was needed with a slower shutter speed.
