Brad's Hands


We all need self-assignments right? I have a couple in mind for the coming weeks and today's image is the first of one of them: A series on island musician's hands. I'm planning on using film for most but this one was shot with a borrowed DSLR. ISO 200, 1/8s @ f4 with a beanbag for support.

Brad is a busy guy and everybody on Gabriola has heard him play guitar or mandolin with one of the many groups he's involved with. He's great on both instruments but I chose to photograph the mando because I've been listening to his CD lately and it features that instrument along with Antonio Gradanti's excellent guitar playing. Listen for yourself here

Sorry I haven't been by this week. I've caught up with all you get shots however. I'm going to listen to this musician right now.

Delightful and delovely. You really captured the making of music. A most effective photograph!

Damn that's good. Stillness where it's needed, motion where it has something to say.
