Sauti Sol In Concert – Another One For The Ladies

by wamuyuk posted November 12, 2013 category Gigs and Events

Hey guys.

Doing a black and white post again.

A couple of weeks ago, Sauti Sol held an intimate invite only concert for ladies at the Michael Joseph Centre to celebrate women and promote Breast Cancer awareness. I know most of you reading this do not need to be told this but I will say it anyway! Those guys can SING!! Wah!! It was for tears. Literally. There a song they sampled from their upcoming album that I cannot wait to hear again!! It was a great show.

This time round I had the Canon 40D with me and as usual my trusty nifty 50mm f/1.8 lens. The 40D does not handle high ISOs as well as say the Canon 60D and 7D. Most evening LIVE gigs are usually held in low light and unless using a flash (which the other photographers use, its their choice really. I prefer not to use flash because its tends to wash out the subject and sometimes the ambient light lends an artistic feel to the photos e.g The Villagers Band gig I shot at Treehouse ) you have to use high ISOs and low apertures, risking some grain in your photos. This time round I got a lot of grain in my photos. I kinda like the effect. Check the pictures out and let me know what you think.

PS: Before you say that Chimano is in a lot of the pictures, let me say I am naturally drawn to expressive subjects and he is a very expressive performer.

  4. Which lens did you use? F what?Did you up the ISO or something?
    Grainless photos..I like

    • Hey Felix. I used the Canon 60 D together with a combination of the 50mm f/1.8 and the 24-105mm f/4.0. As for the ISO and aperture, they were all dependent of available light. Will try and add the specs for photos in subsequent posts. Thanks.
