    Not a low light photograph, but from the time I got into photographing musicians. And it's hilarious!
    Two of a Kind.

    And wow. Lots of photos. Will post them when I've got them sorted to only a couple.
    Edit: Got down to four photos. Which isn't much out of 166. And those are the ones that made it to flickr! The thought of all those photos is making my brain hurt. I think I had better light then Dorkmuffin did, or I used a higher ISO setting. Or both. Anyway, here they are.

    Huh. I had no idea how lucky I was and how many friends I had back then.

    Due to life, it's been probably a year or more since I've been here... but here I am again. These are some pics that I took at a local lake that's really more of a dried up puddle now due to the drought. My family and I went out looking for the town that they had flooded back in the fifties when they made the lake, but never found it.

    Should we not start a winter photography thread?

    Winter is coming.
    • CommentTimeDec 2nd 2011
    Before winter falls here is my first try at photographing musicians. Please meet Sigrid Perdulas from the "punk-clown-cabaret" band "Lux Interior" ...

    Lux Interior

    Most of the time, I take a lot of pictures during live shows, but rarely the musicians. Soon a few pics from a recent "Einstürzende Neubauten" live show and there should be some Blixa. And, yes I know I should take more pictures with humans in it.

    And two randoms from ...

    I've got a few band pictures from an adventure I had driving Scottish anarcho-punk legends OI Polloi on tour round Europe a few years ago. By no means professional, there are some that I really liked:

    On stage in Poland.

    The band played some real toilets!

    Old punk, still rocking.

    Calum rocking the kilt

    Somewhere in northern Italy

    Vienna, I think.

    Got, Chicken?

    This is a chicken that belongs to one of my friends in Richmond, VA. His name is Fodder

    Cara, that macro work is amazing!

    Thanks, I think this shot had a lot of luck involved because that chicken didn't hold still for very long :)

    For the first time in what feels like months I left the house with my camera for no other reason than to take photos for ME (as opposed to taking them for work).

    Still getting back in to the swing of things, but I like some of the shots I took so far. This one in particular.

    Likewise. Expect a bit more photographs from me again. I'm starting to go through my year of images. Here's something from October.

    Go right ahead.

    @Joanne, that is so so so so lovely. And confusing. And lovely.
    • CommentTimeDec 4th 2011
    Yes, it is a beautiful confusing photo. It took me a while to figure out what was going on with the leg. For a little while I thought there might actually be two people in this photo, curled around each other.

    Going through more of my photos from the Blade Runner themed NYCC afterparty:

    This last shot looks super filtered, but it's actually something about vibrancy of the stage lights and the movement that caused my camera to make most of the shots of her come out strangely smoothed.

    I didn't get any good photos of her dancing with the snake. For shame.

    @256: thanks

    A bug.

    Went out last week to the nearest cathedral to get some night shots. SHould have used the tripod more, but I think I'll make a habit of this.



    And finally what I think is my favourite shot from all the matches I have photographed this year.

  8.  (10245.199)
    Mmph. More shots from the Blade Runner themed party thing.




    More shots using multiple exposure HDR merging to capture movement and depth. Some of the shots look 3D to me, because the way I see I always see overlapping double, so in some ways, these are like, hyper real to me, and look sort of three dimensional, which is neat, because I don't have depth perception.
