Embrace LIVE

By sugar jones  
Well, went to Leeds on Monday to see Embrace on the Chris Moyles Radio Road Show to try my hand at gig photography. Here they are, lead singer Danny listens as the crowd sing back to him.
I was behind approx 100 people deep, standing on a wall - no tripod with my 85-200 lens (all I have zoom wise) which I got with the camera. I'd been moved from a really good viewpoint up on the art gallery wall having passed four stewards I got there started taking pics but was removed for health and safety reasons and because I had no 'access all areas pass' turns out they thought I was one of the crew and didn't bother looking and checking to see if I had a pass. Turned this one b/w, added noise and thats pretty much it. Just playing with borders too.

BONUS!!!! Having coffee at Leeds station, who should also pop in for coffee two members of Embrace, Danny and Steve and yes I had my pic taken with them! Very nice down to earth guys on their way to London to finish their next album. So thanks to you guys should you ever read this. I realise I should end this paragraph with the words
"Which was nice."

Capture the moment, can even listen to my photos!
How bizarre is that! LMAO ;P

Great toy! Just waiting on my diffuser thingy to arrive - as so far it works well as a cat scarer when flashed out into the garden its got a great reach, amazing quality and bounces off ceilings well!!
Didn't use it monday for fear of looking too pro and being thrown out although should have as there were plenty like me waitng to get 'that shot'. Low light and that distance caused me bother as its the only zoom lens I have. This was a colour shot and would probably work well as a press shot I just thought I'd try b/w.
