Another Inspiration video

Dream

I do like my inspirational videos and enjoy sharing them.Well here’s another.

I usually prefer videos which aren’t so targeted i.e. not about inspiration itself but about other people doing what they do, and doing it well sometimes in the face of adversity – but this is a direct one. However if you look at the creators other videos – you see there is a creative pattern there too.

Originally found on Zack Arias’ Dedpxl blog, from the series The Society of Good Stuff – by Meghan Arias. Specific post has several inspirational inspired items.

Gig: Olly Murs, Ella Eyre + Bright Sparks

Olly Murs

A set from my second event at The O2 Arena – this time Olly Murs plus guests.

This was the first event I’ve been to with a runway of sorts. We were warned initially that we’d have to stay at the front as pyrotechnics would be going off towards the back of the stage. Alas I missed photographing them going off – Boo! I just had my camera down for a fraction of a second.

At the O2 – you can’t take your camera bag into the arena – you have to leave it back stage. Last time I had a lens bag on my belt but I forgot it this time. A lot of photographers often have two bodies, especially from the main agencies – but I can’t justify that. The lens case I use for these things doesn’t really work well – belt loop too low on it – so I might look to buy some alternative option.

Olly Murs show was a great spectacle – great stage lighting/ background graphics.

Ella Eyre was great – struck me as a cross between Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill. listening to her on Spotify -0 sounds very Amy Winehouse but then there are lots of Housy remixes.

Gig: Marc Almond + Monitcristos

Marc Almond

A few photos from the gig I covered on Friday – Marc Almond at Shepherd’s Bush empire.

At the time – it seemed fairly easy going – but then getting home it turned out that the lighting had been quite heavy on the red – something that always seems to perplex digital cameras. It often causes them to over expose – but of late I’ve dialled the exposure down a bit more. Still need to correct heavy red cast though. Annoying as it can take time as it takes more than one pass – White Balance, colour adjustment levels, etc.
