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,
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.
