Over the weekend, the band had the opportunity to play at this awesome outdoor retreat center with an amphitheater built into the side of the rock. It was a pretty incredible set-up. Even cooler, rather than promoting our own concert, the venue pretty much had their own group of about 80 people that attended. Here's a couple of pictures that I took at the concert:
Now, my sister and parents also came to the concert. It was bloody hot, and my sister was taking a ton of pictures, so I told her that she could go ahead and use my DSLR to take pictures if she wanted. She said sure, and proceeded to fill up my entire memory card, which is hard to do! I did learn a lesson though--it's important to make sure that whoever is using my camera knows how to work the camera. I figured that she did, but only about 10% of the pictures were in focus, and there were quite a few that were shot directly into the sun. I also think I may have left it set to focus to a particular focus point rather than to auto focus. I also didn't show her some of the different modes she could have shot in, which probably would have been helpful. Like I said, it was my fault for assuming that she knew how to work a DSLR without any instruction. Oh well, you live and learn, and she still got some great shots!
