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.
