Shadows in the Upper Deck

Jimmy Buffett performs at the First Midwest Bank Ampitheatre on June 27, 2015

Finding the Little Things Away From the Stage

While at the Jimmy Buffett concert a week or so ago I noticed this great scene while looking around the venue. In the upper deck there was a great light that cast a large shadow of the suite goers onto the wall. I swung my camera up to make this photo. The light was not a particularly flattering one so I knew at the time that this would be a black and white photo. This is also a testament to the power of the Canon Powershot G16 camera. This is a fully zoomed in photo from my seat into the upper deck, and it looks great. This is a great camera that I would recommend to anyone looking for a powerful point and shoot.

  1. Hi I really enjoy your blog. Thanks so much for the G16 images. I have a 15 year old son in AAU basketball and was thinking about getting the G16 for some action shots. It has 12.2 fps and a good fast shutter speed, I thought I could probably get some usable action with it. I am an amateur, so I wonder if you could offer an opinion about this camera for that purpose. Thanks again.

    1. I think that it may not be too good in a dark gym like most basketball is played in. I was just barely able to get some good results with it in an NBA arena with the TV lights on. A basic dSLR (like the Rebel series) with a fast lens would be your best bet. If you can get close enough the 50mm 1.8 is a good lens. It is fast enough for the dark gym, and only around $100. Thanks for reading the blog!
