Mad Brenda Rocks Jammin Java
Mad Brenda was not the least bit deterred by last night's snowstorm and rocked Jammin Java here in Northern Virginia. The music was fantastic and the crowd was loving it. Concert photography is challenging, more so when the night club in which you are in is very dimly lit.
The photos above were taken with a Canon 7D racked out at 6400 ISO, with a Canon 70-200mm f2.8 lens, tweaked in Adobe Lightroom, and denoised in CS4 using Topaz deNoise software. I think the result is fair. Gotta keep trying to find that diamond in the rough.
The entire evening was broadcast by my friend Jim Folliard of Fairfax Video Studio on uStreamTV so my kids were able to watch the band (and me) on my MAC. How cool is that?
