Earlier this afternoon, me and a group of friends made our way to the Bee, Publika for the live band performance event called "Fireflies and Something Something". The main reason I was there was of course for Silent Scenery, my favourite local band (you must be very new to this blog if you do not know I love this band so much). The event gathered quite a number of local bands and artists, showcasing talents and providing exposure to the crowd. It was indeed great seeing more and more local talents stepping up and having the right channel to have their music heard out in the open.
All images were taken with Olympus DSLR E-5 and Zuiko Digital lenses: 11-22mm F2.8-3.5, 50mm F2 macro and 50-200mm F2.8-3.5
SO I'M JENN
It was a great and relaxing afternoon for me and my friends, as we sipped our coffee and had our earful of wonderful music played live on stage. I found myself a chance to work my camera, snapping away happily. The shooting condition was far from ideal, with very low available light level, and the stage lights were made out of different alternating strong color casts that just did not help much at all. Nonetheless, the individual acts being performed off stage (directly in front) was a different story, the singer/artist was lit by the soft window light, though I would say it was very dim too. There was no choice but to bump up the ISO setting, I was constantly shooting between ISO1600 to 3200. Not a great thing to do with an Olympus camera, but hey, why stress out on such issue, when the main priority of being there at the live music was to enjoy the live music !!

It was always a thrill seeing Silent Scenery performing live. If you guys have not heard of Silent Scenery, pleeeeeaaasse visit their website (www.silentscenery.com) to find out more about them. There is also a free MP3 full length song for download, and if you like what you are listening, you may purchase their album online there too. I truly think that Silent Scenery has some really refreshing original sound, and they deserve more exposure.
Weekend has just started. Shutter therapy, here I come.
