Martin and Kimberlee McCarrick opened solo and played backing strings for Kristin Hersh's 2007 world tour. They play cello and violin but in a way where classical meets alternative - to a fast, changing drum beat and interesting video behind them. A very interesting performance.

Martin played cello in the British punk band Siouxie and the Banshees...

The first shot is Martin playing the cello during his opening performace at the Lakeshore Theatre in Chicago. Taken handheld (leaning up against the seat in front of me) from the sixth row and across the stage at 125mm zoom. Aperture was f5.6, shutter 1/10sec and ISO was either 1600 or higher.

couldn't stop the blur of movement in his head and hand.

Kimberlee was a bit closer but still difficult to capture.
Taken at 82mm zoom, f5.6 and 1/5sec with a high ISO.

Nice captures of professionals at work. I note that that like the old timers in my former amateur orchestra, it's the hands that move, not the rest of the body, during a long exposure.
