Little Mono were the first band to reach out to me for some photos back in 2014 and I really enjoyed their tunes, so when I saw they’d released an album, Sailing Songs, which eventually turned out to be one of my most played albums of 2016, I jumped at the chance to come and photograph them again.
Their line up had expanded a little, which made getting them all on camera on the West Street Live rather difficult. (There were 5 of them, but I think you can only see 4 in the photos!). The lighting set up for the gig left quite a few dark spots on the stage at the edges, and an awful lot of light straight down the middle. This meant I was struggling a bit with balancing the shots out, leaving some of them a little washed out.
Rather excitingly, this is the last of my backlogged sets of photos (except for one I’ve abandoned!) so all of a sudden I’ve space to take the camera to a few more gigs again… what next!
I took these photos so long ago, it’s kinda of a relief to get through them! I clicked over 400 photos at this gig, which has made getting through them a bit of an epic battle, especially combined with the back pain I’ve caused myself post the tramlines processing marathon. Still, done now!
Some of these have come out ok!
I’ve got a bit of a backlog to get through now. Possible 4 gigs worth? :/
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.
