Red Wing, Minnesota

Okay, folks, are you all sitting down? Because these are Jimi pics like you have never seen before--or not from me, at least. I admit they may not be absolutely perfect in every respect, and I'm sure I'll continue to learn and refine my technique at future shows, but DANG. Considering that I'm a dSLR newbie AND this was my first serious shoot in the kind of challenging light conditions presented by a live concert, I seriously cannot even believe how well these pics turned out (not to mention that there were enough of them to spill over into a second gallery just for Jimi alone!). So yeah, I think I did a pretty respectable job of things, even if I do say so myself--and I am NEVER going back to point-and-shoots if I can help it, the difference good equipment makes is really like night and day!

"I can feel you tremble when we touch, and I feel the hand of fate, reaching out to both of us..."
(Okay, I have no idea whether he was actually singing "I Can't Hold Back" at the time I took this shot, but I thought it was an apropos quote for the pic nonetheless. laughing emoticon )

Okay, this isn't so much fishing for vampires as issuing them an engraved invitation. shocked emoticon (Yes, yes, I know, I have an unhealthy obsession with his neck... allow me my fetish, there's plenty of worse things I could be fixated on! laughing emoticon )

A bit dark, this shot, but I still like the effect of the lighting on the tent roof behind him.
