Second half of pics of Beecake at Hotel Cafe
There are some lovely ones in here - trust me. Click on any pic to see the full gallery. A few of the best are below, with one shown, and the rest under lj-cut. Tomorrow night, I'll work on the Brunch photos. As usual, I'll go in chronological order (i.e., as it happened).

Oh, Ros, these are just gorgeous. I'll bet they'd love to have some of these for their site. Thank you so much for sharing them!

You know... I thought about it. But would they be upset about the videos? I mean, they did advertise the JP videos from Barfly, didn't they?

I ran into somebody whose husband took a pic of the whole band, and printed it out, and brought it into get signed, and they wanted a copy. But that was the whole band; I mostly took pics of Billy. He doesn't really need pics. *G*

He is - and thanks! I just did a comment on MySpace; maybe they'll notice it in all that stuff? Who knows!

I second (or was it thirded? is that even a word?) letting the band know. These, as well as the first set, are great shots. They love it when you make stuff for them, made a banner for them once & talked to them about it on Saturday.

Yes yes, also like the first set, I might use some of these for fanart-ing purposes (if that's cool with you). Will credit. =D

Please do - and let me know; I'd love to see the results. I'm not very talented in that direction. *S*

You take just the most fabulous photos. I almost think Billy enjoys singing more than acting.

Thanks so much, piratesorka! You know - maybe he does, compared to movie acting. I wonder about stage acting, though. I'd still love to see him in a good stage production.

Oh, Ros, these are breathtaking! Billy puts all of himself into his music, and you really captured that perfectly. Absolutely beautiful! I'm glad you're letting them know about your pics, because they are the best I have seen yet, and I imagine they will love them! Keep us posted on that.

These are just absolutely amazing shots. I'm sorry it took so long for me to come and see them, but wow. I don't know now whether I'm most envious or more awe-struck.

Over here via beizy. Gorgeous pics. Do you mind me asking what camera you used and if applicable lens?

Nice of beizy to mention this; I'm glad you came by - *S*.

Sure - it's a Nikon D70 (digital), with the 70-200mm f2.8 VR (vibration reduction) lens. I used it at 1600 asa, full open at f 2.8, and it needed every bit of it, especially since it had to be hand held. No flash was used, other than the very first pics in the first half of the photos (when a lot of people with point-and-shoots were taking photos with flash). The stage was in a corner, and I was at the second table against one wall - maybe 15 feet from Billy and 10 feet from the stage? The closeups are probably at 200 mm, and the others at about 100 mm on the zoom. I set the white balance at "incandescent", but, as you can see, the lighting was still very red. Thanks for asking!

Hi Ros-

I added you as a friend, hope that's OK! So great meeting you this weekend. Can't wait to see your pics (I have to wait until I'm at work, I have dialup at home).

Ros, these photos, and the videos--thanks SO MUCH for posting them. I've been having some problems with my internet connection, so I've bookmarked them to try downloading later on, but I really really appreciate the effort you took in sharing these.

Thanks, revie - it's good to know you're enjoying them!

BTW, apparently the downloads reached their limit, but I just purchased more bandwidth - so if you had problems, try again.
