I’ve just finished April 2015! I really need to keep at least less than a year behind. Breaking a year would be bad!
Anyway, ended up at this gig as I do like Firesuite after stumbling into them at Tramsline 2014. A friend of mine suggested that Vasa were worth seeing as well. This is probably the last gig where I used my Canon EOS 500D, and the darkness of The South Sea was probably the straw that broke the camels back. I remember being quite frustrated with the darkness and inability to get a clear/non blurry/non dark shot.
Looking back at what I’ve pulled out of the set, it obviously wasn’t that bad!

My first attempt to photograph a festival was a very different kettle of fish to just turning up at a gig with my camera. No, instead it was turning up at 10 different gigs with my camera! I spent the whole evening rotating around the Tramlines fringe, which was about 10 different venues, sticking my head in and taking pictures. I ended up with about 490 photos, from which I’ve managed to tidy up and select a rather scary 90+! I’m not sure if the forced time with each band meant my shooting was more selective, or because I’ve less photos to choose from for each band I’m being less picky. Well, let me know 😉
