Spotlight On:

Devon Marks, nephew, godson and guitar hero, takes stage right at the Oceanside High School's annual variety show last night. He played 'Stand By Me', a song by Oasis. (I've got to check if he's familiar with the Ben E. King song of the same name.) He played well, despite losing his pick, which he recovered quickly from. There are more pictures of Devon, and some of the other acts from the show here and here.

This was shot with the 5D at 3200 ISO, f2.8, 1/125 second exposure at 200mm. I converted the color to black and white since he was performing under a red spotlight the entire time. Red light has a way of making images look out of focus, and very quickly hurts to look at.

He can "sing me something new" anytime. It always sounds good.
