    My son Sean was playing in his jazz/funk band tonight. 1932 Lady Conn tenor sax and an EWI (electronic wind instrument). Still experimenting with my new camera and look forward to better days. However, here are a few shots which, to me, are anarchistic. I was trying not to use a flash.





    and now things were moving a bit fast .... still like the abstract nature of it though



    oh well, next week ..... -Bob

    I really love this last one. It's the mood of pure and simple music making, man!
    Like totally.

    I know shots under those conditions are tough, but were it a really clearly blurred shot, it could really work, ya know?

    I wonder if the pros have any tips 'bout that?

    I like where youÔÇÖre going with the photos of your son. If I could suggest just a couple of things: first, get closer to your subject and have one person or instrument as ÔÇ£theÔÇØ center of interest. Second, try shooting from either side of the stage so that the stage lights (if they are front lit) will give more dimension to the subject. Practice sessions are probably the best time to make shots like this, just bring with a couple of garage work lights and clamp them to what ever is handy and donÔÇÖt be shy about ÔÇ£playingÔÇØ with the lights. Hope that helps.

    Here are a couple of examples I dug out of my digital archive. These were shot for a bandÔÇÖs poster or rather a series of posters; the goal was to make the viewer feel the emotion, intensity and artistry of the music. Now the shots are used as ÔÇ£fridge artÔÇØ thatÔÇÖs the reason for the border and title.

    I don't mind a blurred photo. I think they can add to the mood.

    Here's a couple I've taken that have come out "wrong", but I still like.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    Nothing wrong with this shot. You've suggested it's an out take, but I think it's a great shot and really hard to capture something like this even when you're trying! Talk about a picture speaking a thousand words!

    RandallIsland... thanks for the endorsement. My son, especially when he's "in the zone" is my favorite subject for photos. Excellent musician. And Bluestune, thanks for the suggestions. Will try for some pics at their practice rather than in the bars (although that adds a greater dynamic). I am trying to nudge them into having a website so maybe I can create some visuals for the site. Anyway, thanks for the input. -Bob
