Jackie Green rolled through San Diego on Friday night and I was lucky enough to be able to shot the show. (Thanks Marty)

This show had a lot going for it musically and some real problems photographically. With Jackie being the opening act, the stage setup was a little crowded and with no photo pit the sight lines were few and far between. I traded between a 85mm f/1.4 and a 70-200mm f/2.8 on my D700 body. I shot between 1250 and 3200 ISO all show with the majority of the images shot at ISO 1600.


The one good thing about shooting this show was that I was able to shoot from the balcony and since it was a smaller club, the view down to the stage was great. This was especially good when shooting Jackie behind the keys.
