Magic Man at the Tropicana in Havana

Magic Man - Tropicana Club Havana - 2013

Here’s another image from our evening out in Havana at the Tropicana Club. This was near the end of the floor show – shot with my Nikon D600 and the Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 prime lens, ISO 3200, 1/250 at f/4. Post-processed using Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2 and a number of other tweaks in Photoshop CS6.

It’s Friday night at the Tropicana in Havana!

Tropicana 1 - Havana - 2013

Three weeks ago tonight, Doug Kaye and I – along with several colleagues from our group – headed out of downtown Havana for the 10 PM show outdoors at the famous Tropicana. The floor show was great and we had good seats just off the main stage.

I was shooting with a Nikon 85mm f/1.8 prime lens on my Nikon D600 – and fired off almost 400 shots (in burst mode!) during the floor show.

It was great fun – my first experience shooting a live stage performance with my DSLR – something usually not permitted here back home! I resisted the Cuban rum and my own cigar – but enjoyed the aromas around me!
