In December 2016 my wife and I at­tend­ed the Windham Hill Winter Solstice 30th an­ni­ver­sa­ry concert, at the Newmark Theatre in the Antoinette Hatfield Hall com­plex, on SW Broadway at Main Street in downtown Portland, Oregon.

Performing that evening were Alex De Grassi, William Ackerman, Barbara Higbie, Todd Boston and Ellen Sanders.

I for sure did not want to take my full Micro Four Thirds camera kit with me to the con­cert, as I did not want to look like a pro­fes­sion­al photographer. Therefore I brought my Panasonic Lumix DMC-​ZS50 pocket cam­era so I could remain discreet and un­ob­tru­sive.

I’m pretty happy with how the concert pictures turned out, given the significant limitations of a pocket camera. In the end, photos with somewhat-reduced quality are much better than no photos at all. I think I made the right equip­ment choice, and I am content with that decision.

I took a total of 72 pictures at the Antoinette Hatfield Hall venue. The best 21, including 12 during the concert, can be found in this album.

The photos in this album were taken with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS50 camera.
