With lighting as moody and lush as their sound, Love at 20’s set at The Parish was a challenge to say the least.
Love at 20 is a local Austin act made up of former members of Clap Clap. These guys have a very polished sound, and are obviously no stranger to the rock show. Their stage presence was great, and their performance was sharp.
This was, without a doubt, one of the more challenging sets I have shot recently. It was dark, and blue — REALLY blue. Most of Love at 20’s set was washed with blue LED’s, strong LED rear spot lighting and LED lasers. This set really put the Canon 5d Mark II through the low-light ringer.
I shot with the Canon 24-70mm 2.8L and think I may have needed something a bit faster. However, I like the focusing speed that the 24-70mm L glass brings, and I don’t know that I have anything in my bag right now that could have done a better job. It’s a great focal range for the stage at The Parish, and it really produces great results.
