Good afternoon everyone,

Many thanks for your comments on votes on the Limehouse Lizzy series and very special thanks to John for his precious user award yesterday on the Boys are back in town.

The photography last night was a complete wash out as the stage lighting was exceptionally poor - there was a main spot light centred on the middle of the stage and that was about it - I was unable to get any band shots without the guys on either side being in the shadow and the singer becoming over exposed - so as I promised you some band pic's I have had a trawl back through my files and come up with this one taken a few months ago.

There is no post shot processing in this image - the lighting guy has this really good trick of blueing out all of the stage apart from the main performer which in this case was Dave playing a solo on his acoustic guitar - very effective.

All is not lost, the guys are playing at a festival this coming weekend so I hope to redeem myself and get a good cache of shots there to share with you!!

I hope you had a great weekend.

Best Wishes
Heather

Be grateful you aren't a folkie - at least there ARE stage lights at your gigs!

Soem folk clubs - especially back when ultrafast colour film was 500ASA - just had a feeble fluorescent tube over the top of the chair the performer sat on. (Note that I don't say "stage"...)

Was so looking forward to seeing Mr. B too!! Take some huge spotlights next week!! Tongue

Wish someone would do shots of my hubby's band like this. He asked me to do some but I am hopeless with people photos. Really like this effect. Moira

Clever shot....like the way the guitarist, who I presume is playing a solo, stands out in the spotlight as opposed to the rest of the band just backing him....
