A portrait of an iconic American performer during the season-opening concert at the Grand Theatre Center for the Arts is Tracy Camera Club’s September photo of the month.

Pat Ching of Tracy took the photograph of Willie Nelson during his two-night concert stand at the Grand, Sept. 11 and 12. She titled the print “Shotgun Willie.”

“Since photography was not prohibited, I took advantage of a relatively unobstructed view from near the rear of the theater to take several shots — well, many shots,” Ching explained in an email.

She noted that the musician’s hair was tinted magenta by the stage lighting in the color image, so she converted it to black and white.

Ching used a Nikon D300 camera set to 1/180s, f5.6, 240mm at 3200 ISO.

• The Tracy Camera Club meets at 7 p.m. the second Wednesday of each month on the second floor of the Grand Theatre Center for the Arts, 715 Central Ave. For information: Mickey McGuire, 835-6758 or elmicky@coreyfro.com.
