Dave Matthews Band - 1993 


This shot of Dave Matthews (right) and Boyd Tinsley was taken in October or November of 1993 in Charlottesville, VA.  

This is the first entry in my Photo Blog. Most of the shots I take now are simple snapshots of my family, and I'll continue to post those as I have been doing (generally without commentary).

But as I work through the process of organizing and scanning the boxes and boxes of slides and negatives I have accumulated over the last decade or more, I intend to refresh this site regularly with some of the shots I find most interesting. Or ones I simply want to share.



This shot of Dave Matthews (right) and Boyd Tinsley was taken in October or November of 1993 in Charlottesville, VA. I suspect that this performance was the Remember Two Things Release Party, but I'm not certain.

During the performance at Trax, I shot a roll of KODAK PROFESSIONAL High-Speed Infrared and a roll of Ektachrome as well. This shot is from the infrared roll, the processing of which I must have botched because the film base is substantially fogged. Or maybe the film was old or over-heated. In any event, my Nikon Coolscan V ED couldn't detect it when I tried to scan it using the strip film adapter so I ended up cutting out this single frame and sticking it into a slide mount.

High-Speed Infrared is a very low resolution film with very coarse grain, and it can be challenging to work with. Because of it's sensitivity to infrared light, which most normal light meters can't measure, setting the exposure requires a lot of trial and error. I like using it in concert settings because incandescent lights throw off a substantial amount of IR light.
