CineFest #5

I was very lucky to be on the documentary crew. Setting up lighting is very hard work!

Diwali. (#40136)

Apparently the biggest Diwali festival in Europe is in Leicester. There were 100s of people some of whom managed to stay completely still throughout the 20 second exposure!

P.S.: Celebrating 2000 hits recorded yesterday since the start of this blog in february. Almost 500 hits this month alone!

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.
