I didn’t know much about The Shears going into this show, but this Austin group was a lot of fun to shoot.
With a mix somewhere between Aretha Franklin and The Killers, The Shears brought the dance to The Parish last Thursday. Singer, Inne, has an amazing stage presence and spent a lot of time interacting with the crowd and photogs that were present.
The lighting for The Shears varied pretty widely from song to song, and was definitely a challenge to keep up with. My ISO was pretty high for the entire set so that I could keep my shutter speed pretty quick for the active stage presence that singer Inne brought to the stage. Overall I would say my shutter speed hung out around 1/160th for most of the set.
I shot this show with the Canon 5d Mark II and Canon 24-70mm 2.8L. It’s definitely my goto combo when shooting at The Parish.
