You’ll be seeing a lot of The Frantic in upcoming posts. I’ve been crashing some of their recording sessions, shooting promos with them, and went to this JBTV taping. Sometimes it just works that way – lots of one band at one time. I like it.
More to come from this, obviously. I still have the digital shots.
And, as always, don’t forget to tune into JBTV – Wednesdays at 11 on WJYS 62 in Chicago. The episodes are also on iTunes the day after airing. There’s no excuse to miss one.
After shooting a roll of film at the AM Taxi recording at JBTV, I wanted to try again. This time I wanted to use black and white film (because I got a few weird color casts on the color film), and I wanted to try a new camera I had just gotten. My husband got me a Canon EOS 650, which has an EF mount, and thus allows me to use all my digital lenses on a film body. It also has auto-focusing and auto film advance. Before this camera, all my other film cameras were manual focus and I had to advance the film (I really really like old cameras). So, this camera kind of opened up a whole new world – manual focusing is so hard with concerts, and with the ability to use my digital lenses, I could shoot wide or telephoto.
I think these came out much better, and they were certainly much easier to take. Don’t be surprised if I shoot a bit more film at concerts now (only if I know I’ll have decent light though!).
As mentioned, these were taken with the Canon EOS 650 with 400 speed Kodak 400CN.
