I caught Don Ross and his wife Brooke Miller at the Blacksheep Iin last week. I think it was like, 2 years ago that I first saw them together on a bill before they became an item even. It was a great show of course. Don has this little effects unit now and he does funky wha wha stuff on some songs. He played a lot of Dobro on Brooke's stuff.
She has an album coming out sometime soon. They're spending months just trying to get the perfect tambourine sound or something(grin). She has a new website with some pretty 'interesting' pics on it! I like it!
I came armed with my Nikon D50 all prepared to practice taking concert photos with no flash! That is, set it in semi-manual mode and play with the shutter speed or the F-stop depending on what you're trying to get. I need work. It ain't easy taking pics in the dark. Once and awhile I let a flash go just to get something, but man stage lighting sucks.
The next night I went to John Mayer and the Saturday paper had a great concert photo from the pit. Man. HOW do they DO that! I kinda know the guy that took the photo. I'm gonna have to email him. Neat thing is, all my photos save the cam settings so I can look inside 'em and see what the hell it was set at for any given image.
