      I have been following the band Kharma Train for a few months now and like their shows. The band covers a wide variety of songs from classic rock to todays current hits and can be found at many venues around South Jersey and Delaware and you can click on their name to find more show  dates. Kharma Train includes: Lindsay Guarino, lead vocals; Ed Cleary, lead guitar; Vince Cuomo, percussions; John Keli, bass guitar and Fuzzyman, rhythm guitar. When they are in your area, you have to attend, you will have a great time.
       I have taken a few photos of the band using my iPhone and the app Instagram but this night I decided to bring out the "big guns" and use my Canon 5D Mark II and used two of my favorite lenses, the Canon 50mm "L" f/1.2 and Canon 100mm 2.8 L
        The venue was The Jug Handle Inn, in Cinnaminson New Jersey, has awesome wings by the way, is were the group performed. It was bit dark and I didn't want to annoy the guest by using a flash, so I decided to use available light. I used an ISO range of 2500 to 4000 and yes I didn't always use manual settings nor did I use automatic. I was very happy with how the 50mm preformed in such low light. I also photographed the entire show using the RAW file format which was a big help when editing with Lightroom. I was using the monochrome setting but when I imported into Lightroom, the images converted back to color, no worries, I just changed them back. I have uploaded a few here and comments are welcomed and hope to see you at the next show, thanks for viewing my blog.

Hammonton Photo Walk

I was invited by a high school friend to attend the Worldwide Photowalk sponsored by Scott Kelby, Canon and Adobe and various other sponsors. It was held at the Hammonton Arts Center in Hammonton, NJ. which is located on Rt 30 aka the White Horse Pike, I would recommend that you stop by and pay this very quaint town that is full of coffee shops, boutiques, taverns and plenty of friendly locals. I will definitely be visiting this town again and I suggest if you're in the Southern New Jersey area and on your way to Atlantic City, stop by and pay them a visit.

Mark Mercer, has been unemployed since 2011 and after sending out 100's of resumes without any success he decided to think "outside the box". With his dogs in tow and a large "I Need a Job" sign, he set up in the city's financial district, and started his job search.  While I was there he was approached by a woman who accepted gladly took his resume and hopefully it will lead to permanent employment. I wish him luck and now I have to get back to making my sign!
