Mr Bumbles Jam

My friend Ian has been working hard to get the jam night held every Thursday up and running again at Mr Bumbles Blackwater.

Pre lockdowns I was on the drum seat rota playing every 3 weeks sometimes more often to cover other drummers.

So I popped down on the 16th Dec 2021 to show support, play a few numbers, ended up being 6 & take a set of low light gig pictures.

Canon R6
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4
Canon EF 70-200mm II IS L

As well as the digital gear I also took my point and shoot 35mm film camera and the Canon AL-1 with 50mm f/1.4 to see if I could used them without flash to get some cool pictures. As of the time of writing this I am developing the films and hope to show the results on Vintage Film Website asap.

Was great fun to drum some tracks and take what I think are some cool gig pictures. The R6 really does handle low light & even extreme lo light incredibly well.

Note: I installed the v1.50 firmware on the day as well.

Was fun to be back drumming and try out the R6. I will be repeating this often so hopefully see you there.
