I never thought band photography would be my thing. It’s dark, challenging, people are walking in front of you and mic stands get in the way.
As I was going to the album launch anyway, I thought I might as well bring my camera along. As the first band played, I wandered around, mingled, and took a few test shots. Yes, this is going to be interesting!
Sugarchild took the stage and my camera shutter got a work out.
The crowd left a bit of space for me and I experimented with different angles, making sure I didn’t get in the way of the hired videographer, who was filming to chop things up and put them into their video clip.
I had a great time! I was very happy with what I came away with, and so was the band. I have been a Sugarchild fangirl since we all went to Uni together and Katie is every bit as gorgeous now as she was then.
I see more gig shoots in my future.
