A home for the things I think are worthy of sharing. Will largely be photography based.

Inspirational Video : Making time count

Came across this little video linked by a friend on Facebook.

I wholeheartedly agree with it – likely why I’m constantly so busy and always have stuff to do. I seem to fill my time up without trying.

Gig: Rise Against, Pennywise, Swimmers

Another gig – my first time at Brixton Academy photographing other than club nights.

Nice big pit but a tad on the cold side of things. Happy I managed to get a shot of Rise Against front man going into the crowd!

Swimmers

Pennywise

Lighting was a bit dark and the singer’s cap didn’t help

Modern Panic V

Once again it’s that time of year where the excellent Modern Panic art exhibition is on.
As per before – I had the pleasure to attend the opening event and take photos there.
I have a few friends that are exhibitors there.

It’s a great show and I would highly advise taking a look. As well as the original art – some exhibitors have prints on sale. If I had a big house I’d buy so much from this show!

Inspirational little video

Another one of these inspirational little videos I occasionally come across and enjoy. Not specifically about photography, in fact it’s about music/composing, but rather can really be about almost anything where you create something and can get stuck into it a bit too much.

It starts a bit strangely but stick with it.

 

I get several elements from it, others may get different things.

I know I’ve been guilty of comparing myself to others or my photography to theirs. Sometimes this can be disheartening. I think it’s healthy sometimes – pushes us to be better within ourselves, but it can have negative issues too.

Also – I know I’ve been guilty of getting stuck into editing and turning other things down because I have too much to do.

And we’re all probably guilty of taking life too seriously at times.

Gig: Kyla La Grange + Shannon Saunders

A new venue for me tonight – both in terms of photography and in any way – club/gig/etc

Alas – yet another where there was lots of back lighting in one set of colours and lots of smoke. Although thankfully there was a bit more subject lighting. RAW files help a huge amount in editing club photos as you can correct people’s colour tones a little. Although in this set there were instances that the light and therefore skin was so blue/pink etc that Camera Raw would only change it so much. I think some DNG converters can push the colour change further.

I may look to using a custom white balance in future gigs rather than auto. SHame you can’t name them in my camera else I might use names such as gig:blue, gig:red, etc.

Gig: The Coronas + The Carnabys

What was supposed to be my second of four in the week but is actually first as the gig at Heaven club was postponed.

I like the setup at Scala – there’s a mini pit but us photographers can also stand at the side and enjoy the gig too.

The lighting for the headliners (The Coronas) wasn’t so good though – lots of back-lighting, smoke and strobes. FOr photography purposes it could have really done with more lighting on the band.

Enjoyed both bands.

Gig: Jack Savoretti + Gizmo Vanilla

Another day, another gig.

This one was at The Tabernacle in west London. One of those scenarios where there’s no barrier so I had to make my way amongst the crowd. This meant that I only shot from about two positions as people weren’t keen for having me stand in front of them.
