Laura Kemp @ daVinci Days

daVinci Daysis a Corvallis, Oregon staple.  It rallies the community around science, music, and general revelry.  It has kinetic sculpture races, frisbee dog contests, an electrathon, sidewalk chalk art, and a main stage. 

This year, I had the opportunity to shoot a folk singer from Eugene – Laura Kemp.  Before the gig, to be honest, I didn’t know her music or her name (and couldn’t remember it without looking at the backstage pass around my neck).  But throughout the hour or so set – I had a chance to listen while snapping some images – and she was quite good.  Her website is here – check it out if you get the chance.

About the image?  Pronounced low, strong back light.  Shooting the 70-200 @ f/4 (aperture priority).  Trying to go stealth from low and in the corner.  Live gigs will give plenty of opportunities to show folks in unflattering poses – especially when shooting from a low position.  Be diligent in selecting those images to share and shoot lots (lots!) of images to give yourself a better chance of a keeper.
