Hey, pictures! This time we get a look at the Charetta and Letterist performances @ Alphabet Lounge.
CharettaYou should know I got there late. I feel pretty terrible about that. In fact it wasn't until the Letterist performance that I really started getting a feel for the area. So those pictures came out better. Next time you guys perform I promise to get there on time and take better pics. So sorry!
This I really like this concept. I should do more close-ups of people playing.
Angelina tell's me she's now hooked on live performing and can't get enough. I guess she means singing live. I mean, she's been in theater since I've known her!
More photos...LetteristThe Letterist performance was next. Since I had more time, these photos came out better and I wasn't rushing through it.
Yeah, Alphabet Lounge needs to get rid of that fucking bar. I wanted to saw it off. It's pretty awful.
I wasn't sure which was better. This grainy gritty version or the one I ran through Noise Ninja. You decide. Here's the other version.
I was going for an over the shoulder point-of-view. See the performance from the eyes of the artist. I don't think I pulled at off too well. At least we see less of that insufferable bar.
Yes, I took a few photos in color. As as you can see, for their performance Letterist used different lighting. But for all I know it was the same with Charetta until I got there. I feel terrible about that.
Oh man, I love this shot. For this one I bent down and tried to get the bar over the performers.
More photos...What I do when I shoot live performances and heavy action is I turn off the preview. This give me a valuable additional second or two to take more photos. I can always see what I captured when there's less of a chance of missing something. Besides, film cameras don't have previews.
And there you go. I did more cropping to the photos this time. And I didn't use much flash because I wanted the photos to replicate the feeling of watching a performance in dim lighting. Think I pulled it off?
Oh, I forgot, you can catch them on MySpace: Charetta / Letterist
