This probably isn't art and it's not perfect; it's fun photography in the ask a stranger mode. I have no idea why they agreed to be photographed. The girls must have mistaken me for Steve McCurry, LOL. The Last Concert is a funky Mexican restaurant located in the warehouse district north of downtown Houston. There are a few artists studios nearby and live entertainment is offered on weekends.

D700, 50mm G AF-S, f/2.8, 1/25th, ISO 5000

Now that I am recently seperated and divorce pending, I love that photo!! LOL

Nice job getting them to agree to a shot.

One thing to work on for next time: f/2.8 did not allow enough depth of field to have them all in focus. When taking group shots like this you need a wider margin, otherwise you end up, as you did, with the middle girls very sharp and the girls in front and behind not sharp.

Paul, there was not enough light to use an aperture that would have given enough depth of field. I was already at 1/25 and ISO 5000. As it was, the girls in the back were not too bad, but the front row is unsharp.

Flash is a possibility, but I don't use it.
