New Madrid Live at Terminal West, Atlanta, GA, 12.26.15

This is a selection of photographs from New Madrid’s performance at Terminal West in Atlanta, GA on December 26, 2015. I took these pictures on my 16-megapixel Samsung Galaxy S6. Because the camera’s automatic ISO was overcranked and its auto shutter was very slow due to the low-light conditions, the images exhibit substantial digital artifacting, commonly referred to as “noise,” as well as motion blur. I was initially dismayed when I found this to be the case, but I realized while editing the photos that I could manipulate them to create an almost painting-like appearance, with the blur and noise giving the impression of brushstrokes.
