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.
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.
