Last night I took my 5d Mark II for a spin with video… I knew I’d be able to shoot this Sonic Youth show really well with the excellent low light capabilities of this camera’s sensor and wanted to practice my video recording technique here too… then this morning I realize I had the sound turned off (had been trying to save memory when shooting video previously), so my video is not worth sharing actually, though i think the footage looks amazing.  i’m a little upset about this actually but let’s not talk about it further.  There will be other shows.

The good news:  A photo of mine was used by the Gothamist writer who was covering this show.

For much of the show I was at ISO 6400, shutter speed hovering around 1/125th and sticking around f4. As lighting changes though I make adjustments (if i want to catch those moments when the lights are flashing up i can bring my iso down or increase my depth of field accordingly).
