Guitar heaven?

We had a good night for axe fans at Salisbury City Hall in the week. Legendary guitarist Robin Trower recently hit 70 and decided to celebrate with a new album and a concert tour. And even better he invited Joanne Shaw Taylor (Brit blues queen, now based in Detroit) to open the shows.

There were three of us snapping away. I had met one photog before, with a Canon 400mm f/2.8 monster, I was very surprised to meet another with a couple of OM-Ds. He enjoyed stroking my 40-150/2.8.

Joanne:



I deliberately left this one as a loose crop, I like the sense of isolation against the dark background. It's not the sharpest, 1/100 and she was shaking the guitar (and herself) a fair bit, but I think it captures some of the intensity.

Robin:



He sure gives good gurn He is also a remarkable guitarist. When he played Bridge of Sighs, the title track from his breakthrough second album, it took me straight back to student digs in the 1970s.

Both on EM-1, 40-150/2.8 at full stretch and wide open.

John

Re: Guitar heaven?

Both excellent shots.... movement in the first adds to the image as you said.

If I had ben there I would also stroke the 40-150mm

Re: Guitar heaven?

Thank you gentlemen.

Stuart - it was indeed good to see Mr. Trower. He plays with real intensity, and his main set was over an hour with another 15 minutes or so of encores. If I can maintain 75 minutes at that intensity when I'm 70 I will be a pretty happy bunny!

Re: Guitar heaven?

Great captures and I agree, the movement in image 1 works better and adds real character to the image.
