It was a bit of a rush to get down for this gig. Left work bang on time, rushed home, got changed for a run, showered, and then ran back out to Harrison’s 1854 to catch the first band O Captain. I’d heard them on soundcloud and was really looking forward to them. Glad I managed to make it on time.
Again this time we have lots of LED lights, and some natural light through blinds on stage left. This means the photos for O Captain seemed to come out easier to work with than the darker shots for the other three bands as the sun went down. The obvious exception was the bassist of the last band Bayonet, who, in his white teeshirt, was lit up quite wonderfully and almost all of his shots looked great. The singer of Bayonet was a real struggle to get a good shot off. Most of the shots looked great on my camera preview window, but once I was looking at them on my computer, he was really washed out, and being quite light in colouring made it very hard to get decent photographs. Oh well!
