“Taken during the Apia Good Times Tour, Jon is an amazing entertainer who is always a whole lot of fun to shoot!”
Gear: Nikon D810 and a 70-200mm f 2.8. Shot at 105mm. My settings were. ISO 800, F 3.5, 1/500 I always shoot I manual too.
Post Process: I always shoot in RAW so every image needs some processing, which I do in Lightroom. I had perfect lighting for this show so thankfully the editing was fairly simple. It needed a white balance adjustment to make the skin tones correct, as originally the image came out a little cool due to the blue lighting. I increased the vibrance to about +20 to boost the colour. And I dropped the highlights slightly to take away some of the flares around the edges. I added sharpening of about +10 as well. Other than that it’s pretty much as it was when. I took it. Normally with my editing I try to keep it fairly simple, only adjust what needs to be adjusted and I try to keep the colours as they were at the show.
