This is from a Blue Pipa Trio concert that I did. I am a sound engineer for my day job. I did the sound for this show and also got to shoot it during rehearsal, and some during the show.

I always liked the look of these large diaphragm condensers. The stage lighting was nice and I took a few shots of just the mic...

Whatcha think?

    Yep, that looks like a $3000-$4000USD microphone to me! thumb.gif

    I do like how the light works on the mic itself, but the shock-mount seems a little distracting with these lights.

    I think the shock mount is cool looking in itself, but perhaps it needed a little more DOF to make it sharper.

    Nice pic, especially for equipment geeks (like me :D).

    That looks great, looks expensive even nod.gif
    Interesting lighting too with the gold and pink tones.

    Gosh you'd get some wonderful photographic opportunities working in the Studio wouldn't you :D .

    Well done! .... Skippy
