Country-ish Showcase @ Sahara Lounge (12/9/2020)

Bands & Concerts

One of the major reasons for my rebranding to The Vinyl Lens was because I wanted to do more music and concert photography. I had a lot of plans for 2020 before COVID-19 hit. So many great shows were rolling through Austin, and I wanted to photograph all of them! But shutdowns and all had different plans, so it has now been several months since I've gotten to photograph a live show. Then I got a new camera body, and some small venues were opening up for smaller, socially distanced crowds. So I put some feelers out there to see if any local bands needed some photos so I could swing by and test out the new gear, and Stac3y Bell came to my rescue. She told me about a showcase she was hosting at Sahara Lounge that could use some photography, and I jumped on it. So glad I did! Not only am I really happy with how this camera performs in such low light conditions, but each artist that performed was great. Just really chilled, heartfelt lyrics in this dark dive bar - it was nice. Plus, without a big crowd and all, I was able to hone in and take my time getting some of these shots.
