Marching Band Concert

Marching Band Concert

The Royal British Legion Youth Band Brentwood and the Grenadier Guards Band gave a concert in the Brentwood centre. I was fortunate enough to be invited to come and take pictures.

When photographing “powerful”, “adrenaline filled”, “straight to the point” and “explosive” FranKo, I decided to try something different, and ended up with flourescent outlines of the band members.

French band 1973 performed at 229, and the light was as challenging as ever. I decided to hide the spotlights behind the performers, and ended up with this picture of Jérôme Plasseraud.

Embrace the colours

Embrace the colours

The coloured LED lights used at 229 when Amoriste played there last Wednesday, absolutely killed any chance of getting a decent colour balance. After trying to fight it in vain, I eventually embraced the weird and wonderful colours, and ended up with a set of almost psychedelic concert photos. It’s not everybody’s taste, but I actually quite like them.

Amoriste launched their outstanding new EP, Under The Hours Of Satellite Towers, with a great launch party at The Queen of Hoxton. The large audience was buzzing, and the gig was fantastic. I left my trusty zoom at home, and had a great learning experience with my new fast prime instead.

Armed Forces Day

Armed Forces Day was combined with the annual Strawberry Fair in Brentwood this year. I went to take pictures of strawberries, but came home with shots of soldiers, medals, marching bands, archers, artists and a medieval cannon.
