Not much to do on Sunday night, and after feeling a little rejuvenated from taking the Fallen Mafia pictures the other day, I spotted that there was an event on at The South Sea up in Broomhill and though I’d go for a wander up.
These guys were all LOUD. I was wearing plugs, but still felt a bit deaf afterwards! They were also all brilliant. Really tight, quality sound. Lots of energy and really fun to shoot.
They could do with a couple more lighting cans in the South Sea though. A lot of the lighting was concentrating down on the right hand corner of the stage, biasing quite a few of the photos. They were also mostly white, which must have been really warm!
I took these at the end of last year, but the lack of any significant lighting at The Hop prevented me really doing much with them. After sorting out the photos from Friday evening, I decided to tidy them up and upload them anyway. I’m a bit more happy with them, but the lack of lighting meant they all felt a bit samey.
Easter Bank Holiday is upon me and I had NOTHING to do, so considered going out clubbing. Then I realised that Resistenz festival was on at Corp which kinda scuppered that plan. While moaning about this on Facebook, Kev from Newcastle pointed out that a band he thought were good were playing The Dove and Rainbow, so I decided to go and shoot them instead!
I took about 700 images, and managed to pull these 61 out which I was happyish with. The light isn’t great on right hand side of the Dove, but we work with what we’ve got :). There is quite a lot of colour tweaking in photoshop on these.
