The Silence at Tramlines 2015

I didn’t take my camera for Tramlines 2015 as I’d bought tickets and “the rules” would have prevented me taking it into any of the of the official venues. However, I was in Maida Vale with some friends and got an itchy shutter finger and stole Steve’s Canon EOS 70D for a couple of shots.

Tramlines 2014 – Sunday!

Finally. Got through them all! It took Sunday a little slower, even though slower still meant 20 bands, but over 8 venues. Due to quite a few of these shots being taken in West Street Live, which had the same blue leds burning away at the stage, I’ve been a little more experimental with some Lightroom work here, just to ease the boredom of some of the shots all looking the same.

Tramlines 2014 – Saturday!

Wow, that took a long, long time. 710 photos, all from Saturday. 27 bands, in 11 different venues, boiled down to 198 different pictures. It’s taken me over 3 weeks to get through them. I hope you all like them!

(Just Sunday to go now… urk!)

Tramlines 2014 – Friday!

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 😉
