318 Coffee and Bands

Posted on 6:19 AM by jr cline | 2 comments


 It was raining when I drove to 318 Coffee and Bands Friday night. 
The rain wasn't keeping anyone away. 
    (Taken with a Sony Alpha 700 and f1.8 50mm prime lens.)
 Paying the cover charge to this lovely lady was a pleasure.
She was friendly, a lot of fun, and quick to pose.
You never know what the crowd will be like in small southern towns.
Fortunately, this was a fun loving, arty, and interesting group.
(These were all shot in program mode.)  

(ISO was either 800 or 1000.)
 The bands rocked the place!

(I shot in black and white.)
It is outstanding to have a local venue for live music.
(No flash)
 (What post processing I did was with PS4)
 (and consisted of some cropping, straightening, level adjustment, and slight sharpening.)
All evenings come to an end eventually.
   (When I set out on this photo adventure, it wasn't)

 I was glad the rain had stopped for the drive back to where I stay.
(my intention to take pictures of people, places, or bands.)
I'll definitely be back for more coffee and bands.
(This photo adventure was all about light, dark, and contrast.)

Was our hostess too busy serving grenades to the underage caffeine abusers to pose for a photo? ;-)

Very cool pics with great results. I love the black and white...and the processing. Woohoo...looked like a good time. :-)
