About 10 days ago, Status-FLO (Joel “Jaybird” Cowell, Tsyoshi “Yosh” Curtis, Tony L. Walker, Mark Sexton + more) laid down their luscious and smoky grooves in preparation of Sage Francis’ headlining set at the 2011 World AIDS Day benefit concert at Knitting Factory Concert House in downtown Reno. With a non-stop lyrical overdrive carefully laid atop soulful downtempo grooves, Status-FLO’s local blend of organic musical ingredients is a solid bet any day of the week, and it pleases me to no end to have the privilege of photographing a bit of the magic to share with the faithful readers here at I Shoot Reno.
Settings on the Nikon D7000 camera (using the Nikon 50mm f/1.8D lens) were essentially the same as shooting Sage (and many other shows at The Knit), with shutter speed of 1/250th of a second, aperture set to 1.8 and ISO cranked up to 3200. Editing took place in Lightrrom 3 and Lightbox by Photocrati is the theme used on IShootReno.com to present the final product. Included in the full gallery (link below, in ALL CAPS), images include Status-FLO’s performance, breakdancers performing in-between sets, live art taking place throughout the night including such themes as ‘Zombie Bill Cosby’ and Eazy-E, as well as a very unique pair of sparkly blue jeans (under red light). Yes, you read correctly, there’s a photo of a pair of sparkly jeans.
