Visiting Prague means a great variety of cultural input. You can spend every night there in jazzclub, blues bar, etc. Usually you get to hear high quality stuff. We were lucky and enjoyed a night listening to a piano trio. The acoustics down in that cellar from a building of the middle ages were breathtaking. Olympus EM 5 with Nocticron the pianist
I took this portrait of English jazz pianist Julian Joseph in 2016 using my M9 and Zeiss 50mm f1.5 lens @ 1250iso. Shutter was 1/125 and aperture f5.7. It was shot as .dng for use by the theatre, and I have only just converted it to mono using LRCC. Lighting was stage lighting (i.e. no flash). Hope you like it! Gerry
Taken from the 3rd floor of a mall atrium and looking down into the 1st level where a pianist was playing. I wanted to capture two contrasting scenes: On one side the people standing still while listening to the pianist play his tunes, and on the other side, people milling around the fruit stand. I wanted to portray the movement so I timed the shot at .7secs. Anything longer rendered the moving people invisible already. The other challenge was to keep the hand-held shot steady while looking down from the railing and hoping the cam doesn't fall M9, Summicron M 50 0.7/f4.0
