    Beautiful b & w. Wondering what f stop you used for this. I want to photograph the Santa Semana procession in Spain next month and will need some low light techniques!

    Thank you, Christilou. I believe this was shot at f/2. You just need to figure out the speed and direction of the procession to choose the ISO and speed. At least the procession may proceed at a steady pace, whereas, musicians' movements tend to be very abrupt and quick.

    That looks really good- like what would be on a classic jazz record liner.

    Thanks, I saw it last year but believe it or not, I didn't have my camera with me! The procession is slow and there are static moments where the front line army stop and twirl their rifles to a drumbeat as well as the walking part with representatives from the services and children carrying very long candles. The problem is that it begins at 9 pm in dimly lit streets.

    Could easily be a DownBeat feature photo. With such as these, you could team with a writer to submit articles to regional and national magazines. I'm sure the club owner would be glad to have your shots hanging in the club, too.

    Thank you everyone. Carlb, I will have to explore your suggestion. Usually, if I could get the musicians' email, I would send them copies.

    Agreed, your musician photos are excellent - there's a real intimate sense of being right there...and they're beautifully post processed in black and white.
