It was the perfect setting for this performance by the legendary double Rock Hall of Fame inductee Graham Nash. The weather had broken into a full warm spring sunset and you could sense that being in the midst of these super fans, many being well beyond their salad days, you knew you were surrounded by actual flower children and hippies. The keepers of the light.
I noticed a Kundalini Yogi as she found her seat in the front row. Brief eye contact and quick smiles, the vibe of the theater kept rising in anticipation. I felt a small tremor of the Muladhara Chakra as I proceeded to focus on the task at hand.
Graham Nash’s performance was superb. His voice at perfect pitch. I felt connected once again to that wonder I once looked for, have been looking for, for all these years.
For this show, keeping portraits in mind, I brought my two 5D Mk II bodies using the 70-200mm 2.8 Canon Lens as well as the Canon 24-70mm 2.8. I was running both at an ISO of 1600 with a shutter speed of 160 at F 2.8. These setting were right on for this one and required almost no adjustments in post.
