Red Rebel County @ 115 Bourbon St
What do you shoot on St. Patrick’s Day? An Irish band of course!

Red Rebel County’s set included a few originals as well as a bunch of classic Dropkick Murphy and Flogging Molly songs. Throw in some bagpipes, a few kilts, a great crowd, some beer, and a little kid who was decked out in green, and it was the epitome of St. Patrick’s Day!

Shooting Notes

This show was a different experience for me for a few reasons – first of all, I had never shot this specific stage at 115 Bourbon St before (they have a few stages), I also was asked to get photos of the crowd singing along, and I’m not much of a crowd/club shooter (although I do admire Darkroom Demons who ARE club shooters).

So, the stage was small and tight, with a lot of people on stage as well as a lot banners and lights… cluttered stage. As I always do when presented with a cluttered stage, I started off with a telephoto. This not only allows for tighter shots, but also intensifies the depth of field to mask some of the background. I did get some wider shots for variety, but I definitely started out with the telephoto to get the “safe” shots first. Luckily, I had the whole hour set to shoot.

For the crowd shots, I mostly shot wide (went back and forth with the 16-35mm and the 35mm) and had my husband hold a 580EX off to the side, which I triggered remotely with RadioPoppers. I made sure to first meter for ambient light (which was 1/125, f/2.8, 6400ISO), then just added in the flash (set on ETTL).
