j. greene and the steady - this is a shakedown!

shot with the Fuji X-T1, Fuji 23mm F1.4 and Fuji 56mm F1.2

I'll keep this post as short and sweet as possible.  First and foremost I would like to give props to these guys for putting on a great show.  I dig the tunes and will one day try to catch them in their backyard (Austin, TX aka ATX).  I first caught these guys a while back and was hooked; whenever they are in town I try to pay my respects.  

If you've never listed to the music, catch one of their newer songs, 'Shakedown'...love the song, love the energy, love the music....

One other tidbit of info before I pass out for the evening.  I'm sure many of you in the photography world are going thru your own personal Apple Aperture exodus.  I am personally disappointed that Apple is moving to what seems to be a more consumer based product, but the new Capture One Pro 8 is excellent and gets pretty close to emulating Apple's File Management system.  This workflow is just as important as the editing tool in my opinion.

If you are like me and looking for an Aperture alternative, check it out.  It plays really nice with the Fuji X system.  I'm not 100 percent sold but I have a feeling my time with Lightroom will be brief!

Quick thought for gear nerd stuff.  I love my Fuji X cameras more and more each day that I use them.  The picture below is an ISO 12800 shot with not a lot of post processing done to it.  Is it noisy?  Sure.  Is it perfect?  No.  Is it usable, definitely.....It's not a Sony A7s when it comes to noise performance but what is right now?  Keep in mind the bar was almost completely dark!  Not bad....

                                                                      iso 12800, 1/5.6s shutter, fuji 23mm f1.4

Back to the band and photos...if you're out there in Austin, get out and catch a show and if you're not in Austin give them a listen, you won't be disappointed.  Click on that gigantic link to see where they will be next!

Now for photos....and sleep....goodnight (processed in Capture One Pro 8 with a touch of hue and saturation boost to the black and white.)
