Tycho Live Band Photos + Seattle

September 28th, 2010






For anyone that missed Sunday’s Tycho show here in Seattle, it was awesome. I won’t say too too much (for those who may be going to the New York and Toronto shows), but definitely make them if you’re in either of the two areas. There are some new versions of different tracks, all of which were great.

I was surprised at how these photos turned out. The lighting was horrid—super bright lights that when on the band, turned them smurf blue. Since its been some time since I’ve shot any concert photos, I definitely have taken ISO expansion for granted. All of these new cameras capable of ISO up to 12,800 are catching my eye. I don’t mind some noise, but there certainly is a point when I draw the line. I can see a need to upgrade camera bodies sometime in the near future. Perhaps when the Canon 1D Mark V comes out I’ll upgrade to the 1D Mark IV. Until then the 1D Mark II will have to suffice.

    Great shots, Shelby! Love the one of Dusty harnessing the power of the Moog!

  2. Wow man, these are so gorgeous. The first one is just screaming to become a poster!

  3. Shelby White says:

    Glad you guys think so. I was worried that the photos were lost to the smurf-ness colors.

  4. Alex Cornell says:

    Yeah Shelby, these are terrific. Agreed about the first one — killer shot!

  5. Kevin says:

    i actually like the blue. works really well with the orange projection.

  6. Josh Whybark says:

    I love these. I think they turned out fantastic!

    The pictures turn out good. @Mat MacQuarrie is right the first one could be used as a poster. When I saw Tycho at the FITC Event my photos didn’t turn out good. But Raoul Ortega a friend I met at the show let me use his photos for my post. I did however get good video of Tycho and his live band if you wanted to check them out. Here is the link http://damionscsav.blogspot.com/2010/08/tycho-live-fitc-event.html.

    Awesome photos! I think the coloring is superb – did you alter the colors in the first two pictures? Would love to know how you did it! :)

  14. Chris says:

    Hey Shelby, great shots! What lens were you using?

  15. Shelby White says:

    All of these with the exception of the third image down (shot on 17-40), were shot on the 70-200. I had a 50 1.4 with me but couldn’t get close enough.

  16. Chris says:

    Very cool, I was wonder if you were using a 50 prime, but distance definitely makes it more difficult.

    nice shots! what about a nikon 3ds? that is one hell of a camera.

  19. winkle. says:

    haha that should be a d3s, sorry.

  20. Great shots! Any of these available for purchasing? Would look great in our studio space here in Copenhagen. :)

    Hey Michael,

    As of right now they aren’t…but I’m working on a solution for that.
