Live: Peter Wagner @ The Parish – Austin, TX

Peter Wagner @ The Parish - Austin, TX 8/20/10

Peter Wagner is better known as the front man for Austin indie veterans, The Mercers.  I was lucky enough to catch him in a rare acoustic set in support of The Wooden Birds and Dan Mangan.  The lighting for this set was low, but Peter’s voice and sincerity shown through.

Thoughts & Shooting Notes:

Peter’s set was challenging due to the red/orange washes and extremely low lighting.  Luckily the Canon 5d mkii has no problem shooting at fairly high ISO’s with very little noise.  I shot at around 1/160 for this set, and an aperture of 2.8 all the way.  The Parish has a decently low stage and since I had full access to the width of the stage, shooting with the Canon 24-70mm 2.8 was more than enough lens for this set.
