Steel Threads and The South

Well it was another very busy night at the Exeter Phoenix last Saturday.  Together with Steve from MusicMuso we covered two most excellent bands.  As always on the Unplugged blog, here are a couple of sneaky peak shots before they appear on MusicMuso.

First up we have the rather awesome Steel Threads...

And the for the main act we have The South.  This picture is of long term keyboard player Damon Butcher.  It was a real pleasure watching him work his magic.

You can read a full review of the gig and see more photos over on MusicMuso.

On a technical note...

This was my first gig shooting with the brand new Nikon D750.  This camera replaced my Nikon D610 mainly because of D750's improved autofocus system and low light shooting capabilities.  It also has built in wireless so that I can pull (JPG) files straight onto my tablet and send them live to my Twitter feed during the gig.  A huge improvement over the shots I used to send to Twitter from my Nexus 5 phone.  

While I'm very impressed with the image quality, I couldn't use my normal Adobe workflow to process the images as Adobe Camera RAW doesn't yet support the D750.  I had a little less control over the images than I normally have and it took me longer to process them, but that is the price you pay for being a day one adopter!  I'm sure Adobe will have an update out soon.

It's been another late night of editing, so time for bed.  See you next time on the Unplugged blog!
