G-TARanaki Midnight Sessions- Thursday night!!

by admin, August 13, 2010

I’m shooting the main events of G-TARanaki this week, starting with last night’s Midnight Session, then main concert & Midnight Sessions tonight and tomorrow night- Wow, what a night, and what an amazing event! Such amazing talent in every performer, it’s amazing to watch and even more amazing to photograph them. Last night was the first, after seeing the lighting set up I wasn’t sure on how much light was going to be available. I thought shooting at 800iso was going to cover it, maybe 1600iso max… not so! I seriously pushed both cameras and lenses to their very limits, it’s a beautiful thing when you know you’re pushing your gear so hard and pull it off, it’s also a mighty fine feeling knowing that they can! Anyway, here’s a couple of images I processed at 4am this morning! Not sure I’ll be able to do this over the whole event, but I’m hoping to…

Anyway, enjoy =)…
