While working on my last set of photos, I realised I had a couple of photos sets which didn’t appear to be on the site! Oops! Here is set from Wanton 3, at the Yellow Arch Studios. Sadly we had snow on the day, which limited the turn out, but it was great fun nonetheless!
Dave Chitty, who I photo’d a long time ago as a drummer for Little Mono asked me to come and take some photos for the new event he was putting on at the Plug: Wanton! Being as I’d caught up with my back log (not for long though!) I accepted and went along to take some shots.
Sadly, the lighting rig at Plug was in a poor state of repair, meaning there was actually very little lighting directed at the front of the stage. That combined with the use of smoke made it quite hard to get shots I was happy with. In the end, I managed to force these shots out from the wreckage, which the bands liked. Dave picked up the torch though and ‘had words’ with Plug and got them to sort the lighting rig for the next Wanton though!

Finally! An update. Life has been very hectic recently and I pretty much put the camera down for about 6 months. Oh and Lightroom too, meaning that this set of photos was taken just over 12 months ago… Oh dear!
It’s a bit of a mixed bag to be honest. Felt like I was struggling both to take then and to process them. The Stop Drop Robot shots were especially difficult because they were wearing white which made the LED lights either blow the shots out completely or be in almost darkness. Still, let me know if you like them.
