Thinking ala Randy Bartlett's 1% Solution, yes pic #631 is a good shot, but instead of reading from a piece of paper (as seen by your audience), wouldn't it be a BETTER shot if you were holding it in a portfolio/binder type holder?
Just a thought/suggestion. Otherwise, yes, it's a good shot.
OtsDJ indeed - and as for the piece of paper, I usually use computer-printed 3x5 notecards.
I forget what I was doing there, but I think it was a last-minute bit that involved first names of all the attendees. I noticed a large portion of duplicated names, and it just seemed funny, so I tallied them all all up - 3 pauls, 3 Bobs 4 Erics...On and on and on. It was only 80 people. There were two unrelated Bernards AND a Bernice, John, John, a Jane a Juan...
I normally don't digress like that but it was the right group, and it went off very well.
I use the old S-55 replica because it matches the photos of me on my card. When I saw that the new ones had SM-58 capsules, I had to try it. (the bag it travels in is circa '62) It's a little flourish of my own personal style - I don't think it has any real value other than that.
Pac Athletic Club is a mixed bag: I love the staff - the service there is like a 5 star hotel, but the floor layout is a little kooky, with 4 huge poles in the middle of the room that forces the DJ away from the dance floor and behind banquet tables, and the load-in is designed for semi-trailers, so you have to hump it up the service stairs to get to the platform. From there, it's a cake load-in, but the first hurdle is a doozy.
