This weeks photo of the week…I honestly remember next to nothing about it. But I’m going to persevere and write some stuff nonetheless.
I know it was shot at the now defunct Hangar 18 in Greenock,I know that it was shot on my old 1100D (In fact, as I write this I’m not even sure of that) and I used the ever trusty nifty fifty 1.8 to shoot it. I remember having some sort of conversation about ISO on the night and I think I had that 1600 (although why I had it that high in doors in a small venue when I had an external flash is beyond me now.)
What I do like about this photo is the moment. There’s a couple of reasons for that. The first reason is it I feel this photo is the perfect example of artist giving themselves fully to their music and just going for it. For me, I can’t think of a single thing that is anywhere near as brilliant as that. It’s so brilliant that despite The Amorette’s not being my thing musically, I found myself still really impressed by their show as a result.
Passion wins out over anything. At the risk of being self-indulgent I think this photo is a beautiful example of that.
The second reason I like this photo is its one of my first black and white edits that I really genuinely liked. At this point I can’t remember why I went black and white, or how I edited it, but all I know is that I still really like it. Hence why this photo still forms a part of my portfolio today.
