June Portrait - The Bass Player

June 24, 2012  •  1 Comment

June Portrait 006 When my friend, Barb Wendt, sent me an email announcing the first Hartland Jazz Festival, I had immediate interest in attending for several reasons. First, Claire and I enjoy Jazz. Secondly the artistic director for the festival is Peter Concilio, a friend of the Wendts and an influential high school teacher of their daughters. Finally I had seen Peter perform several times and I knew I had an opportunity for my June Portrait. I love watching the faces of performing jazz musicians as they are so expressive. I used my Tamron 70-300mm @ 240mm, f5.6, 1/80 because I knew this would blur the background. I then positioned the shot to isolate Peter in front of trees in the background.

I love how you captured his expression and being lost in his music. I wish you could have captured the expressions I saw on Ben's face when I was watching him in April play. I did the best I could with my camera and the lack of skill that I have.
I love your talent!
