Well, we got away to a late start and spent the first night at Boorawa, a good bit short of our target, Orange, on the Central Highlands.
Got to Nygnan in time to set up and get dinner on the barbie before it got too dark.
The word was that a fella was booked to sing in the shed, down by the river bank so while Lesley washed the dishes, I put on my long lens and wandered down.
The park isn’t all that busy with a dozen or so grey nomad couples like ourselves, and I reckon they were nearly all there for the free performance.
Tony Hunt sang a few Johnny Cash songs and that sort of stuff.
He was well set up with a basic sound system including drum beat and sounded OK to my untrained ear.
The photography wasn’t all that easy. Hand held using a long lens with image stabilization (IS). The lighting was from a mixture of fluro and incadescent lights up in the rafters and trained on the audience, rather than the performer.
ISO 3200, which is stretching it a bit for my camera, and aperture nearly full open on kit lens. Still, I’m fairly happy with the results.
As usual with these type of blokes, it’s hard to get them with they’re eyes open and without the microphone covering half of their face.
