Fishtank Ensemble in Sunnyvale

I ran into this band at de Young in June 2008 and immediately became a fan. This time only core members were present.  I was happy to see how little they changed.  Fabrice Martinezis is still a tough subject to photograph.  I tried hard to capture a single instance of emotion on his face.  All to no avail.  Djordje on the other hand has enough drive and energy for the entire band.  I would love to hear him playing rockabilly as he allegedly does.  Unfortunately Ursula was sick and did not sing much.  She is pretty amazing.  Can't wait to see their next CD!
This was also a first time I made a major mistake in my shooting process.  Image quality settings were accidentally changed from RAW to JPG.  So please do not judge the camera by the quality of the images - it is all operators mistake.  D600 with 80-200mm 2.8 is a wonderful combination and I could not be happier about it.
