My friend and usual sound engineer’s band, Death’s Eminence played at The Phoenix Theater in Petaluma, CA. While not a fancy or glamorous venue. It is a place out of my own adolescence; I have spent many nights of my youth at the Phoenix. Last night I returned to the theater to catch, I hoped a few good photos, perhaps some video. AS you can see, I got some OK photos, but had forgotten my flash and mic at home. I was at the mercy of house lights, and timing. none of my video came out. I have reached the limit of my Sony a55 for video use, so now I am looking at other options for that. Id love to get a new a77II for photos and videos. With its improved low light I wouldn’t even miss the flash as much.
