Blues Jam at The Skylark Lounge

Last night I stopped by the Austin Blues Society Jam at The Skylark Lounge in Austin. This regular event gives aspiring Blues musicians a chance to showcase their chops. The house was packed to capacity and there were some talented folks on the stage. Each act was given 3 songs to perform. My wife and I were treating a friend from Chicago to a taste of the Austin music scene so I left my serious camera gear at home, opting to take a few snaps with my iPhone. That's a huge challenge in this dimly lit dive bar. I managed to capture a few images that I like and it was fun to take just a few casual snaps while mainly enjoying the show.

All photos taken with an iPhone 6s Plus with Moondog Labs 1.33 anamorphic lens. Photo capture and initial processing in the Blackie app. Further processing in Adobe Lightroom.
