Fan Art Blog #1

This will be the first in an ongoing series of blog posts where the content is made up purely of art our fans send us. This is from a recent show in Kirkland, WA, these photos are by Jeff Heinz that he sent us in an email so we decided to throw them up on our blog. So if you have any photos, live recordings, videos, paintings, etc. that are about Still Time, inspired by, or just something artistic that you want to share with the Still Time community please send it to and we'll post it here!

I totally experienced one of those moments last Thursday evening, ( Aug 5th 2010) that just makes you feel really glad you were, where you were. My wife and I were heading down to the Kirkland Summer Concert Series at Marina Park in Kirkland and to be honest, I couldn’t even remember the name of the band that was going to be playing. As usual, I had some camera gear with me, but this night I actually brought a long lens (70-200 f2.8) and my mono-pod so I could sit on the hill and get some closer shots. So with a big towel laid out we sat and listened as the band was just getting started. I was just grabbing some shots of the band from about 100 feet away and we were really digging the sound of these guys.

Still Time is a band from San Luis Obispo California, and these guys were gettin it done for Kirkland! It wasn’t long into their set when I told my wife… “After their break I gotta get down closer and capture some of this, in the way I am hearing and feeling it.”

By the time they started playing their second set, it must have been close to 8pm, and I had lost almost all the light that was going to make it possible to shoot them with that long lens, or at least that was my first thought. I knew as soon as I stared shooting in that low, late evening light, that the shots I was getting were exactly how I was feeling the music. This, my friends, is another one of those moments that is pretty freakin cool!

I ran the ISO up to 800 or even 1600 on some shots and was shooting wide open (f2.8). I was not looking at many of the shots on the display at this point, as I did not want to take my eye out of the viewfinder, it was just too good of a show!

To sum this up, I am going to be buying both albums from Still Time and if you are a local and you are not coming out to the concerts….. you are seriously missing out on some fantastic music!
