Another of the better shots I took during one of the live jazz concerts in Fairbanks, AK. There were many closeups of equipment and instruments that day. I personally enjoyed the perspective of which part of the instrument was in focus versus out of focus. I was still getting comfortable with the standard lens that came with my camera and wasn’t very concerned about the aperture setting. Part of me also thought different focal points was more artful. I’ve experimented with different settings and styles since then.

This is one of my favorite close up shots. I was shooting a live jazz concert while in Fairbanks, AK. I have hundreds of photos from that summer just from the live music events. Along with the performers, I shot many photos of their equipment and instruments like this one. I was still getting comfortable with the standard lens that came with my camera. I had many shots I deleted because they didn’t focus as well as this one. That was mostly due to me not having a steady hand while shooting. I’m much better now. This isn’t my favorite shot from that summer but it’s one of the best.
