p.1 #1 · A Couple More of Alexis - Additional Shot Added


My granddaughter had another singing engagement last night, competing in her high school's Battle of The Bands. First time out for her, she ended up placing second. She was the only "solo act" amongst a large group of manly "rock bands". As you can tell, I'm so excited for her

In my posting of her last performance, Ron & Bud suggested that I try a longer focal length, so I went out with my 70-200. C&C welcome.

Thanks again, Bob

No video, sorry. Thanks for the nice words. This was just about the only "quiet" time of the evening, seemed like each band was just trying to outdo the others by sheer volume!!

Bob, I like these so so so much better! Do you see how with the wider angle there was so much in the shot with Alexis, mainly distracting? There's a place for wide shots, but then you want to get in nice and tight like you did here.

And I agree, the overhead lighting stunk. But you did well with it.

Great job!

Thanks Ron, yes, for the performance being in the school's PAC, I was somewhat surprised by the crew's lack of attention to detail.

Thanks again for the suggestion to go to the 70-200.

Thanks for sharing. I really enjoyed them both. My granddaughter, who played sax and occasionally sang in a rock band is now in her 2nd year in college and hasn't played since high school. I miss it, although my photo ops were scary (for me) according to my wife and daughter. I enjoyed the photos of Alexis - love to see more.

Thanks for the overnight comments

Harold, it's a shame your granddaughter wasn't able to continue with her musical talents. It's tough for Alexis, she's only a sophomore in high school, tough for her to keep up with her musical side, along with being in the honors programs at school. Somehow she's keeping up with both. She's taking a little break over the holidays, she wants to complete the CD that she's working on, hopefully we can wrap that up in January, I hope

I'll be sure to post more as she starts back up after the new year, again thanks for the comments

Really excellent shots Grampa ! I can't tell which I like better. Both can be used in a press profile for her if she decides to tour in the future.

Love to hear her music sometime. (What does she sing ? rock, country, folk, jazz ??)

Looking forward to more shots.

Thanks for the nice words. She sings I guess you could say pop/ rock with a little country flare!!! She writes a lot of he own music too

She's making her parents and grandparents very proud

Throwing in one additional shot from this shoot, I know that hair in the face may or may not make it a better picture, but I love the intensity in her face (if you can look thru the hair), in your opinion, does this picture work for you??

Thanks, Bob
