After a slightly unscheduled break from gig photography, I was kindly invited to photograph The Sandrunners EP launch at the 2014 Belfast Nashville festival. A great night of music with The Sandrunners ably accompanied by The White Mansions and Lazy Flies.
I enjoy gig photography – it’s not a controlled environment so you’ve got to grab as you go. But unless you’re photographing a rock concert, the lighting is never going to be on your side and even with F4 lenses and a 5Dmk2 I find I struggle to get a decent exposure. I’m not sure I’m quite ready to spend serious cash on an F2.8 though.
