Bar Photography: Dong Abay at Votre

My cousin and I met up last night. Checked out Votre, this bar at the corner of Sergeant Esguerra and Eugenio Lopez. They were featuring Dong Abay last night. Was able to catch him and Coffeebreak Island, the band that opened and backed him, perform several new songs as well as some Yano classics. He sang "Perpekto", "Senti", "Banal na Aso, Santong Kabayo" and "Kamusta Na".



I gotta say I'm not a big fan, or at least I never took the time or made the effort to follow him or his bands, but there's just something about a live performance that really gets you, viscerally.

Was armed with my e410, and 28mm manual OM lens. Due to the spectacular lighting at the venue, I opted to go up to ASA 1600, making my shots grainy. Eventually I opted for pop-up flash use since I didn't bother to bring my hot shoe flash, but then better for you to be able to see what I heard yeah?

Long time no blog

Good lord. It's been months since my last post. It seems getting assigned to the newest branch of The Picture Company really got me busy. And no photos to show for it. :) Well, maybe I ought to ask... until then, we'll see.

For now, random lights.

Out of focus Christmas lights, Granada Street
