I hadn’t shot at DPAC (Durham Performance Arts Center), yet for our new publication Indra, but Joe Bonamassa was just too good to let slide.Sure enough, he just tore it up, a true legendary Guitar Hero knocked us all out during the first three tunes. The first three is all we get permission to shoot, but fair enough, it was an awesome performance of power and mastery.
Joe Bonamassa is touring promoting his new studio album: “Blues of Desperation”At DPAC we shoot from down the sides of the theater, so I brought two Canon 5D Mark 2 bodies, a Canon 400 2.8 lens, and the Canon 70 – 200 2.8 fitted with a 1.4 extender. This brings the lens up to F4, which is iffy at a concert, but usually fine for things under a spotlight. Things worked out ok this time.
