Known as the "Godmother of Alternative Music" Kristin Hersh has been writing music and performing for over 20 years- with the band she founded "Throwing Muses", solo, or with her latest band "fifty Foot Wave." She clearly has a love for music and it shows when she performs.

The first shot was taken with a Nikon D40 and a 300mm lens from the 6th row of the Lakeshore Theater in Chicago. Settings were manual, 270mm zoom, aperature f5.6, shutter 1/25 sec.

Stage lights only and no tripod so I had to brace the camera on the seat-back in the row ahead of me.

The second shot is from the same performance - with the lens at around 110mm, aperature at f5.6, shutter 1/13 sec and ISO 1600.

Excellent shots, particularly with those low shutter speeds and high ISO's.
