A Girl in a Tree – Priscilla Ahn at Slim’s

Fuji X100 | 1/60 sec, f/2, ISO 1600

Even though I’ve been listening to her music for a long time, I’ve never actually had a chance to hear Priscilla Ahn sing live. So I was pretty stoked when family treated us to tickets to see her at Slim’s in SF last night.

We pretty easily got a spot right in front. Yessss.

Her performance was phenomenal. I always thought her voice was awesome just from listening to her albums, but hearing her live brought me into a whole new understanding of the incredibleness of her instrument. Her singing has got to be one of the most special, beautiful sounds I’ve heard in my entire life.

And she totally rocked out on that kazoo. =P

My little Fuji did great here with its silent leaf shutter. This wasn’t exactly a rock concert, so I know the loud shutter slap of my DSLR would have been a distraction. High ISO performance continues to impress as well.

Hope she comes to see us in San Francisco again! Check her out:


Her blog is pretty cool too.

  1. I so adore Priscilla’s music. I bought her Dream album a few years back – her voice is so soulful. So awesome that you got to hear her live and so up close too! Very envious 🙂 Your x100 did a great a job in low-light. I wonder if the x10 can perform as well…

  2. Jonathan, very nice low light photos with the X100! Priscilla Ahn is a great talent. Looks like it was a tricky lighting situation (for me anyway). Were you shooting in manual or aperture priority?

    Also, do you shoot both RAW and JPEG on the X100? I’m always shooting both on mine. The colors on the JPEG files are SO GOOD, I can not replicate them on the RAW file in Lightroom. Of course, the RAW files are invaluable with all the adjustments you can do to them, but the Fuji colors really show on the JPEGs.

    1. I’m usually in aperture priority, and that was the case during this concert with the X100. Also, these are all JPEGs. I agree that Fuji’s JPEGs look amazing, and for this reason I rarely shoot RAW with this particular camera.

      Thanks everyone for the comments!
