A Night of Mischief – Katie 1

Nov 7, 2021

Katie Gordon, lead singer for Rogue Swan. I had, at least what Nan I both saw as, so many good shots that we just couldn’t eliminate as many as I needed to for posting. I tried, but she started beating me over the head. We got together and set aside eighteen for me to work on. From the first nine came these seven Katie images. This is the first of two postings, and there are nine more candidate shots. As always, they will remain in the folio section.

This was a Halloween performance, at the Vandiver here in town. Hence the makeup and a couple of the “expressions”. Nan selected the opening shot – by far her favorite. The rest, below, I offer without comment – other than that Katie and her troop put on quite a show. At the same time they offer me an opportunity to do what I love to do, my b&w.

All of these were shot at iso12800 with a Fuji X-t3 and the phenomenally superb 50-140 f2.8 lens – 1/200 of a second at f2.8. They have been added to the A Night of Mischief folio, where they are much larger, really shine and are downloadable.
