Most people would have set their focus on the bass player/ band, but you chose to go for the audience, I like your choice Kent!

Thanks Douglas.

He struck me as a bit contemplative. I tried to convey a relationship between them, regarding the patron's mood, etc.

This is a little club, that reminds me a bit between "Cheers" and "Piano Man". Below ground, one owner, one other bartender ... it has it's set "family" of regulars. Blues on Thursday, Jazz on Friday, Karaoke on Saturday, Sports on Sunday.

20 folks is a busy crowd, 30 is a packed house ... 40 would give the Fire Marshall a coronary.

The foreground sets this composition up Kent IMHO!!!! The bassplayer is noticable enough to be an uninhibited view in the frame. Scale, emotion, depth.....all there!
The "bass section" of the frame is solid.......
Well done>

Wow, this is a very inspiring image. I don't normally pay much attention to all the patrons at my local jazz club but next time I go I'll be sure to absorb the audience a bit more!

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. And welcome to FM, there's plenty of inspiration, from lots of folks to be found. I know I've found plenty here, over the years.

I reckon that's probably one of the reasons why FM ROCKS !!!

Again, welcome to FM.

And, about that cyclist thing ... my days pushin' pedals are behind me, but my appreciation for them are forever.
Gotta show us your ride sometime.

Nice set Kent, even nicer that you've found a club that doesn't mind your photography. Have any patrons ever objected? Do you ask permission? I had to ask.

Way back, early Fuji X-Pro1 days, the owner of the restaurant where my son works said I could take all the pictures I wanted (nothing of note for sure - a 'learning experience', nothing is ever as easy as it sounds) but after several times I quit - I began to feel I was invading others' privacy.

Thus my short-lived street career

Best,

Bob

Hey Bob, thanks.

Nobody's ever said anything in the club. I don't ask ... since it then influences their behavior. It's kind of a Catch-22, so understanding that there isn't a perfect relationship between advance permission vs. candid ... so, it is what it is.

I hear ya on the privacy thing ... of course, if anyone takes an objection, I'll respect their regard. Pretty much, if someone is paying much attention to me, that means I've influenced their behavior already, so I really don't shoot them, anyway. Most folks just think I'm shooting the band or the surroundings, since I am. They just happen to be in the line of sight, too sometimes.

When I leave for the evening, there are a couple regulars that will ask "Did you get some good ones?" or "What are you shooting with?", so there's some good regard from the patrons / staff. I'm looking forward to returning with some prints in hand to share.

Hopefully, I'll get my printer set up and going soon.

Great capture Kent, he seems to be off in his own world not looking at the band, a moment.

Cheers Ray

Thanks Ray. Yeah, he had been talking with another patron, then turned this way. Can't know what's going through his mind, but it seems that something is.
