    I love how inquisitive the leafy guy looks in the first one.

    Of course, what he's thinking is 'I wonder how delicious human brain meats are, anyway?'

    @Dork I was reading a review of the two Boris gigs in NYC this morning and the first thing I thought was "Dork's shots are far superior to these". And they weren't bad shots.

    @dork i've done a few stage/concert shootings, and i'm able to recover tones from heavily saturated red lighting by messing about with the colour channels.

    been ages since i've done concert shots, tho', the last time i did someone was using new LED spots that seem to cycle different colours to make one colour. the colours never looked the same from shot-to-shot even though they looked normal to the naked eye.

    /edited to add:
    i just remembered i did another shoot that had fully LED spots, and it was impossible for me to balance the colours. I'm assuming the LEDs only give out pure colour, since with tungsten, you have the full compliment of RGB wavelengths to work with while colour balancing. with LEDs, it's just impossible. I have to see if high CRI LEDS will be an improvement, but i've yet to find any.

    @dispophoto, the round of shots that were in color were the lights that cycled from different colors so NOTHING WOULD EVER POSSIBLY STAY CONSISTENT.

    I hate the lighting at that venue about as much as I love the venue.

    Also, @Jehrot, gorsh, thanks! (actual blushing may have occurred).

    And yeah, @oldhat, IF ONLY I HAD BETTER LIGHTING/BETTER EDITING CAPABILITIES but I was pretty pleased that at least part of that shot was in focus. Shooting at that place kills me because my camera can't autofocus on ANYTHING when the lighting is that low, so it's blind luck most of the time.

    @dispophoto The LED lights won't cycle colours, but they flicker at different speeds to give different brightnesses so maybe with high shutter speeds you could be catching it with some of them off.

    And I suppose the shutter speeds probably don't even need to be that high given that normal fluorescents flicker at 50Hz (in the UK) and we don't notice it.

    And yeah, I think LEDs put out a pretty limited range of wavelengths. I've never shot a purely LED show as far as I can recall so I've not had too big a problem with them.

    The discussion of LED lights reminded me of some photos I never uploaded, because I didn't care enough about the guy I was shooting. His name is Danyl Johnson, he was on Britain's Got Talent or X Factor or something. My friends were back-up singers on his show where I was working, and I was bored as shit, so I went and took some snaps.

    All the shows that happens on that stage are lit by LED, except for a few decorative lights. Usually, this particular show is pretty flat on Danyl with the spotlights, but some really weird and interesting stuff started happening when they only used one or a couple of colours. I messed around with those a lot in Aperture and some of the resultant images, I'm really happy with.

    Our picnic devolved into yet another five hour geocaching / random exploration and adventure yesterday.

    There was trouble ahead.



    But luckily we could walk on water.

    @Magnulus Those came out really well!

    We're shooting a short about the dichotomy of rich vs poor in young, affluent middle eastern countries. At least, that's what I hope it'll come out as. These things have a way of getting lost by the wayside. Either way, I took some stills as we went.

    Another interesting story (I think) would be; why the fuck would you build gargantuan monoliths entirely out of glass when 98 percent of the country is dust?
