Last night I tried something new – making photos at a rock concert with my iPhone. Given all the circumstances they came out quite well. The main of these ‘ circumstances’ was that Robert Plant and his band the Sensational Space Shifters were to put it mildly brilliant. Plant appeared to be the coolest man I have ever seen – nothing seemed to phase him – even the sound system packing up after the first song. However, it is easy to be cool and collected when you are surround by a group of top top draw musicians along with the occasional appearance of Seth Lakeman for a song or two – he was the warm up act and was again so so good.
The gig last night at the Symphony Hall, Birmingham was the last of the UK/Ireland leg of the tour which means if you want to see Robert Plant and his band in concert you going to have to cross the Atlantic and believe me if you get the opportunity to do so you won’t be disappointed.
As for the iPhone SE it performed quite well. Of course if you examine the images too closely they lose all sense of reality but as a camera to capture the mood and moment it wasn’t at all bad. The only thing I would not do is used the burst function – the resultant images are really not that good at all.
