Bernie Pearl at Old Time Music

DaGoddess @ 10:00

One steadfast rule I have is this: No matter how bad you feel, if you listen to music, you can get through anything. So, it was a bit of a surprise to me when I contemplated not going to the Bernie Pearl show last night. My stomach was unsettled, my head was, too. But I made myself keep on driving. I was already halfway there.

I’m so glad I went. Within seconds of hearing the first notes, I was caught up in the music, lost in the beauty. All troubles gone. All that was left was pure happiness.

After a brief break, Bernie took the stage again and played his version of “I’ll Fly Away”. It was so moving. I almost burst into tears. Thankfully my camera saved me from that.

If you live in San Diego, you can see Bernie Pearl (and many other artists) on May 3, 2009 at Old Time Music at a benefit performance. I highly recommend attending. If you live in Los Angeles, good news for you! Bernie lives up that way and you can see him just at one of his many gigs in the area.

Photo notes: Shot with available light at ISO 800, 1/50 sec shutter, f/5.6. Underexposed by a bunch, and yet, the images turned out perfectly. I had a feeling and I went with it. I’m glad I did. Reasoning: What I really wanted was to capture the light on the faces and hands. I didn’t want to expose for the dark background at all. So, for those of you curious about what I did to get these shots, there you go. My secrets have been revealed.
