Seeing Paul McCartney Live For the First Time
Last summer I was lucky enough to see Paul McCartney play live when he stopped in Indianapolis. He may have started his career in the United States over 50 years ago, but he still puts on a great show. I made this image as I was waiting to get into Banker’s Life Fieldhouse. I was standing in line, and I noticed that they had replaced all of the normal banners with something more fitting for a member of Rock Royalty. I love the way that this entryway is decorated anyway, so when it is done up special it is really amazing. I think that I have mentioned this before, but if you get the chance to see Paul McCartney play live do it. It is a bit expensive, but the show is worth it.
Editing This Photo in Lightroom 5
For this photo I used the HDR Look (light) preset that I downloaded for free from Matt Kloskowski. Matt has some great presets on his site that help get you started. I usually use a preset to see the start of the look that I want, and then edit from there. For this photo though I applied the preset, and then exported the photo to SmugMug. I love it when they are this easy.
Nikon Coolpix S9500 Review
Earlier in the week I did a short review of the camera used here the Nikon Coolpix S9500. This concert here really showed me that the photos that come out of the camera really can be all over. I had to take way too many of the actual concert just to get a couple usable images. You can read the full review here.
This image and all of my others on my website here are now 50% off until Labor Day. I thought that after the long winter that we endured a photo sale was in order.
