Sauti Sol In Concert – Another One For The Ladies
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.
