to bad about the microphone in the front.. the light is very good and soft, the compo is great and i would love to hear this music :D

Bob,

A very beautiful photo. Yes, it would be better without the mic, but performance photography is like street photography that way... you have limited control. Besides, as mics go it's a very unobtrusive one.

Here's the irony: seeing a photo like this makes the viewer wish they could hear the music, at least it does me. So? Well I'm flipping through your portfolio and when I see this picture I'm like "Liu Fang, Liu Fang, I know that name." As it turns out she's headlining at a free weekend festival of Chinese culture here in Toronto that I've been looking forward to going to for weeks (Kid Koala, a favourite DJ of mine, will be there as well -- they have a good lineup).

Anyway, I'm getting off on a tangent but thought you might like the coincidence, especially after the "Fish"/Sandy Skogland kismet a while back.

The point is that this is a very good portrait precisely because its understated mood and soft light so well represent the music that we viewers can't hear, but can imagine a little when we look at it.
