Ooft, it's been a long time. Thanks to health issues over the last couple of years I haven't been able to travel to Glasgow to shoot and the last thing I covered was a local event back in summer 2013, so it was great to get back to The Classic Grand and cover the Scottish date of the Faderhead/Aesthetic Perfection European tour.

It was also the first time I've used my Sony NEX-6 for shooting live music. Although there were a couple of quirks (the shutter button is a little too easy to press fully when you're trying to hold focus, so I may have to look into using rear-button focus for shows, and the aperture dial is a bit easy to accidentally nudge) I still managed to get about the same "keeper" rate as when I was shooting with an SLR and the high ISO performance is noticeably better than my Canon 50D. 3200 ISO is now a useable option rather than a last resort, and I'm interested in seeing how 6400 ISO would perform.

Not to mention it was a really good night. AP really put on a great live show and were definitely the highlight.

I uploaded mosaics of your photos to the jigsaw puzzle site [link] [link]
If you like I will take them down.
However I would like to upload them to my Deviant account.
I would never sell them, I acknowledge the art as yours, and link to your page. I have made the same deal with nmsmith or Nathan smith.
