Hello Readers, my apologies for the dry January but to make up for it, here’s the first of two posts for this week!
On Saturday, we had the pleasure of seeing FUBAR playing at the GPCA in Harlow on Saturday night. They played an awesome set covering everyone from the Foo Fighters, to Muse, to the Stereophonics. Great vocals, great guitar bass and drums. These guys would definately suit a rocked up wedding reception, pub night or party.
In any case, I thought it would be rude not to take a few photographs. It also gave me an opportunity to play with our new Lensbaby (to give you an idea of what it can do, the only photoshopping on these photos is to convert them to black and white). The black and white conversion worked better than colour due to the mix of coloured lights on stage. The magenta light pointing directly at Mikey’s [lead singer] head made for very difficult, flash free shooting!
I’m still pleased with the results.
FUBAR are available for bookings, see their website for details.
Most of these were shot at approx f/2.8 and 1/60 sec on ISO1000+. The last 4 shots using a Lensbaby Muse f/2.0 with double glass optic (some shots f/2.8 some f/4) the rest using using a Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 DG.
