Moves (Not Like Jagger), SF Jazz

D217_P6080091HighISOWEB This was an interesting event at SF Jazz that combined improvisational jazz and skateboarding. This unusual combo worked as a way to get Leo to a jazz concert and we had fun. It was pretty dark in the venue and there were cool spotlights on the skateboarders. I was experimenting with ISO and this photo was actually taken with ISO 16000 (I know, ridiculous ISO number, right). But the high ISO allowed me to bump up my shutter enough to capture action. I like the effect of the graininess with this subject. So, there you have it, sometimes experiments bring surprises that work.
