Live Bands Sofar Sounds

Sofar Sounds Sheffield: Shauna Mackin, Grim Fawkner, Whetherman, Stella Overdrive, Carrie Couture!

So, after realising that starting to run into limitations of my camera with some of the light quality at the gigs, I’ve been looking for a new one! Steve, ever with an eye for a bargain, spotted that Harrisons had a bunch of Canon 5D MkIIIs on their 2nd hand list, so I wandered down and picked one up. (Ouch!) The next week, it occurred to me that the EF lens mount on the new camera wouldn’t fit the kit lens I had been using for anything that was too close for my 50mm prime, or the lenses I was borrowing off of Andy, so had to go back and picked up a 2nd hand Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM Lens, pretty much just in time for this gig.

Sofar Sheffield this time had managed to grab the house of a local architect which was really impressive and provided a good large room, complete with some rather wonderful reverb (which Grim Falkner enjoyed, unplugging completely for one of his songs). The 5 artists, new kit and good lighting meant I ran a bit riot with the shots, taking 458 of them. Ouch! That was obviously quite a few to go though, but even so, I’m still surprised I managed to select and tidy up nearly 90 for this post.
