In what will live on as one of the most memorable shows of the year, Rock Against Alziemer’s raised an unforgettable amount of money and awareness around a disease that affects many loved ones. And they did it by lining up the best show I’d seen all year.
Here’s a few of my favorites from the event which I shot on a Nikon F3 with Ilford Delta 3200, a trusty Ikoflex before the sun went down and a Cannon 2Ti with some borrowed lenses which were very hard to give back (a 1.2 fixed 50mm plastic lens and a 3.5 zoom wide angle). A few things learned about shooting a stage and dark room full of people:
- Setting -2 EV on the digital allowed me to trick the light meter and get the exposures I wanted while still picking up detail in the shadows.
- Setting -2 EV on the film camera did not.
- When shooting for an event, vs for fun, I need to move around more. It’s fine and dandy to zone out and enjoy the music but if I don’t move, my pictures don’t, either.
The full event by pictures can be found @ Flickr along with info on who’s who. Enjoy and don’t forget to check out the event next year.
