I took a lot of photos at gigs this year. Most were taken with a compact camera and came out okay. But I don’t feel like I’ve taken any ‘great photos’ this year. But I was lucky enough to photograph some Daylight Music events and was really enjoyed photographing a gig ‘properly’ and also pleased with the results. Hopefully in 2015, I’ve have more opportunities. Below is a roundup of some of the more interesting photographs taken this year.
John J Presley at Green Note (RX100) – John is really interesting to photograph. He’s got a good expressive stage presence. Probably not the best shot of him I’ve taken this year, but I like this one the most.
Paper Aeroplanes at the Union Chapel (RX100) – Sometimes you’re just too far away to get anything interesting. Sometimes, you get something interesting because you’re far enough away. This is one of the few shots I’ve taken from the back of a gig.
Kingsley Chapman at the Lexington (Sony A7 70-200mm F4) – Rarely have a big zoom with me at gigs. But I was playing with a new (second hand) lens on my Sony. Pleased with some of this photo. Think it captures the ‘brooding’ nature of a Kingsley performance.
