CineFest #1

A day after submitting my final film (Anty-Human) I dived straight into volunteering at the British and International Festival of Cinematography (BIFC) to document the entire event. In some spare moments when the camera was capturing the audience, I managed to snap a few photos on my camera. I picked 7 favourites out of those.

Not mine, but a first for my photography. The day went very well in my opinion but I was so tired from just general stress I went to bed at 9pm (usual time is between 1am and 4am).

Day 7: Cousin Avi.

If you like rock and funk, look this band up. Very fresh and a little reminiscent of RHCP on Blood Sugar Sex Magic.

Evening light have great shadows to the  scene. Tried to back away from the stage so the first and third shots are from the crowd. Couldn’t help but use the makeshift lens on the last one. Took about 5 shots to get the focus on the guitarist right as the lens doesn’t tilt shift as much as you’d like to…

Day 6: Billy Lockett.

The headline act of the festival though, in my opinion, much less memorable than Cousin Avi (tomorrow’s post).

The first photo is probably my best shot from the whole event. The 24-105 lens is perfect for gig shots.

The second shot I took from the stage to have more angles to choose from when going through the photos in LR.
