Black & Blues

We went to the Franke Center for the Arts in Marshall to see blues legend Jimmy Thackery.

Guitarist, Thackery has been a driving force in blues for over 45 years, first as a Nighthawk, then as an Assassin. But for the last quarter-century, Thackery has fronted the Drivers, a band named after a function he’s never performed in a vehicle.

Jimmy played a lot of instrumentals, displaying his smooth guitar style. He also has some nice vocals and was backed up with a two-piece band. The band stepped away to allow the drummer to perform a solo that brought the house to its feet.

This is the first concert I've shot with my new FujiFilm setup. I was impressed with the way the camera performed. The camera is so programmable. I've set up the front and back dials to control ISO and Shutter speed. I was able to shoot all night without even looking at the camera settings, just rotating these dials.

Photography should be fun! It's not about the phone or camera brand you're using. Always remember, your best photographs are the result of one thing, making an effort to get out and shoot.

Comments always welcomed.
