Live Music Photography: Train @ Enmore Theatre


22 Jun

I went and saw American pop/rock group Train at the Enmore Theatre (Sydney) last night for lifemusicmedia.com. Again, not my kind of music, but they were consumate professionals who delivered a very slick performance to a relatively full house. The audience was made up of a lot of women, of all ages and apparent backgrounds. I suppose that’s because of their chart-friendly vibe – but don’t they realise they’re all old men?

I’ll be scribbling up a review of the show for LMM soon, but suffice it to say that the show seemed to mainly revolve around the singer and the bald guitarist, with the other musicians hiding in the shadows behind. It often reeked of cabaret, with a lot of banter to the audience, interaction and even a moment when the singer brought six young women onto the stage to sing along to one of their hits.

I’ve uploaded a selection of images that I took on the night to my flickr page. CLICK HERE to see more. A selection of images exclusive to lifemusicmedia.com will be online shortly.

 
 

Day 3 of 365 – Spew Likes Birds


08 Jun

Day 3 of 365 – Spew Likes Birds
This is ‘Spew’ making his famous ‘bird noise’ as he intently watches two minor birds on the roof of the house next door. Cute bastard.

THE PROJECT:
Just another ‘365’ project; but my first. I’ll be taking pictures of my two cats, Punk and Spew, each day and posting my favourite here. I’ll be trying to capture their personality with each one, but also try and make each image different from the last. Some may include them play fighting, sleeping, stretching, watching the world out the window or looking me straight in the eye.
All images are copyright, but I hope you enjoy anyway.

Chinchen 3

This is a shot from a shoot I did with Newcastle band Chinchen several years ago. It was shot on 35mm transparency film and cross processed to achieve the exaggerated look. This shot was subsequently used on the band’s posters and also on the cover of Newcastle street press, U-turn.

Tess Window Light

Originally uploaded by HoskingIndustries

A nice photo of Tess laying next to a window in our bedroom. Simple window light photo that I touched up in Photoshop using high-pass filter for sharpening, as well as a sepia/orange overlay to warm it up. A little dodging and burning here and there also.

A nice portrait I took of my girlfriend Tess yesterday. Just for practice and mucking about. I messed with it in Photoshop and tried to make it look like an emulsion print on watercolour paper. I think it came out pretty well.
