Aaron is the drummer for "The Mechanicals". Drummers are particularly hard to photograph in dim light — they never hold still!

Almost all of these shots are high to very high ISO. Photographed with various lenses (see EXIF data) and all processed in the very excellent "Raw Shooter Essentials" which is still free for download (2006 version).

This company was purchased by Adobe and it became the core of the Lightroom product. You can still find it and it did mad great work reducing noise in the high iso shots while still allowing detail enhancement. It’s the first time I’ve really used it for a full shoot but it was sure needed for these pics.

Final cropping and tweaking done in GIMP.

Edit: DOH! RSE is removing EXIF data, sorry.
