    I had my double glazed units replaced recently; as part of a major house remodel. The young fitter and I chatted about the music I had on, and it turns out he has his own band (Called "Hate Vessel"; think Gary Numan looks and "9 inch nails" genre you get the picture?)

    anyway, he has a gig coming up quite close by. I have never shot a gig so I asked if I could shoot it as a challenge for me. He was enthusiastic, so off I went to Chinnerys venue at Southend on sea last Friday and watched/shot 3 bands.

    There are 31 images,so here is the link if interested....rather than post a shed load of pics

    Pete, that's a nice set. You should share a few that you like the most if you get a moment. Some people just never click through.... and that would be a shame.

    thanks Luke, will do that.
     
  4. A few have a bit too much noise, but overall pretty nice concert shots.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    I love the grainy B&W shots Pete, almost all of them. A few of the color shots work really well too - I'm thinking a couple of the drummer and the very last shot of the bass player - but generally I think the B&W shots are really brilliant and some of the color not as much.

    Thanks Dave. I am a grain fan and try to emulate some of the old shots from magazines etc. All a question of personal taste I guess. Appreciate you stopping by.

    Thanks Ray. The slash of blue of the bassist is my fave and I will use it as judge bait at the next club competition.
    cheers

    Those are really nice, Pete. Especially the BW.
    For inspiration: did you see Gary Ayala's concert photos?
    Greetings from down under.
