Gonzo's Nose (Band)

... Gonzo's Nose... one of the biggest and most popular bands that regularly play in Arlington... played over Valentines at the Clarendon Grill.

I was trying something new in colour with off-camera flash that did not quite work well so i flipped a few into B&W and played with the mid-contrast in Aperture.  It is not photoshop but it is something.

"Get Smart" teen production by MVCCT

... a fun and colourful show... made me a bit nostalgic for the old TV series.

Backstage at "Get Smart" by MVCCT

... backstage, rehearsal and select character shots for the MVCCT production of "Get Smart".

The character shots were fun, done attempted strobist-style (grin).  A shoot-through umbrella camera right with a 580EXII flash and a 580EXII in back as rim light, both triggered by pocket wizards, with a black foam board behind.  A 580 was also on-camera bounced to the left to fill in the right side of the faces off of a beige wall for colour.  I should have slowed down some to get the most out of the fall-off and rim light.

The Canon 5DmkII was great - it was I that need to wield it a tab more effectively.
