Chaos Divine LIVE at Amplifier – 24 AUG 2012

Last Friday night I had a chance to photoshoot this awesome band at Amplifier.

Lighting is very dark! Well, it is normal for this kinda genre (metal).

These guys remind me of TOOL but in a melodic, atmospheric kinda way.

Lotsa head banging involved 🙂

Camera used:

Canon 5Dmk2

Lens:

Canon 70-200mm F2.8L

 Extra lighting:

Canon speedlite 530EXII

Here are the snaps:


Serial Killer Smile LIVE @Amplifier Capitol – 24 AUG 2012

These guys were opening up for CHAOS DIVINE.

The venue (Amplifier Capitol) wasn’t packed so I was able to roam around very close to the stage. I didn’t need my speedlite to snap these photos.

I really enjoyed watching/listening these guys.

House VS Hurricane @ The Amplifiers – 11th AUG 2012

I am now part of AMN (Australian Musicians Network).

Last week I had the opportunity to shoot a Metal core – Melbourne group called – House VS Hurricane.

The venue was super packed, audience were jumping, screaming, stage diving, haha it was fun night. And no,  I didn’t stage dive … i got my camera with me :p

It was pitched black, the only lighting came from stage lighting. I had to crank up my ISO to 5000. I guess my 5Dmk2 can handle high ISO *NICE* 🙂

Regurgitators | @Indi Bar- Perth Feb 2012

Regurgitator or we call them The gurgs were awesome!

They played classic 90’s songs, all the way to their newer stuff.

The club was PACKED!! I stood in 1 spot all through the set.

My fav song of the night was … *excuse me ‘arsehole’. That is the name of the song 🙂

Everyone were jumping and pushing around, lucky i didnt get pushed. As I was standing far left of the stage (haha i’m smart!!)

A great opportunity for us photographer to shoot these great-talented ladies;  Grace Woodroofe, Felicity Groom, Ruby Boots, Odette Mercy, Lucy Peach, Clare Nina Norelli, Amber Fresh, Nyanda J AND supported by an awesome super funk band – 10 piece Funk Club Band.

Great night and its really nice listening to Amy Winehouse tunes.

Immortal Technique feat. Akir & Poison Pen 14th Jan 2012 @ Villa

The music was pumping and the venue was tightly packed towards the final act.

I was standing on an elevated floor and used my 70-200mm glass to shoot the last performance …

Had a bit of drama with the lighting as it’s got too much ‘blue’, ‘red’ light going on and … it was like pretty dark.

Spent pretty long time editing the photos and had to ditch quite a few bad ones.

VOLTAIRE TWINS @FLY BY NIGHT MUSICIANS CLUB, 05 NOV 2011

Voltaire Twins, they were the 2nd opening act. Oh yeah! they got my attention when they played the first song, remind so much of the 80’s!! awesome!!

The venue is great but it is impossible for me a get a frozen motion-clear-crisp photos without additional lighting.

Now, you may notice that some of them are dark and the others are lighter.

I was using flash for some and turned it off in different times. I couldn’t use it all the way cause, it is a distraction!!

Perth Zoo!!

I took a day off and brought my family to the zoo.

It’s been a fun day, apart from pretty much all the animals are either sleeping or hiding under the cave 😦

I brought my 70 – 200mm long lens so i managed to snap some photos.

It’s a VERY warm and humid day, so I guess i understood why all the animals are under the shelter 🙂

The Dark Woods @The Velvet Lounge 28 Oct 2011

Had a great time shooting these boys last night.

Funk-rock with an attitude! that’s what i would call them.

The velvet lounge is a dark venue with only a few steady dimmed-lights on. You absolutely cannot get a great-clear-crisp photos without any additional photo lighting.

So, thanks to my Canon Speedlite!! It saved me some great photos!!

Church Together, G.O Edward Park – 23rd October 2011

It was such an awesome event!

Hundreds of Churches gathered up all together in 1 night!

I’m truly grateful to be part of it.

Unfortunately i was not able to cover the whole event due to unfitness of my body (yes, i know i gotta exercise more!)

The highlights of the night for was the ‘break-dancing’.

I had to be alert, wide-eyes opened waiting for great movements.

The worship teams were great too! nice work guys!!

Lighting was great and made it easy for me to capture every moment of it!

Trevor Jalla band @the Publican

Here’s my mate Trevor Jalla! Trev and the band play awesome R&B-soul music, perfect for Friday night-after-work-chillin-kinda music!

Trev was one of the first ones whose kind enough to let me do photoshoot on them (thanks bud!) Trevor Jalla Facebook

So, I decided to edit the photos that I took several months ago.

The original ones were not that good due to my limited knowledge of post-processing photos (back then). I thought I want to enhance the photos using Adobe Lightroom and the results are quite pleasing.

Thirty3 Victims, Level Seven, Reapers Riddle, From Isolation

Level Seven start off the night playing some awesome tunes.

Followed by From Isolation. Bit tricky doing photoshoot for these guys cause these boys move around alot so they got me pretty much on my toe :p
Reapers Riddle next, they are great too. I just wish i had my long lens so i could get a shot of the drummers, cause they are located far back!
Now, the main attraction! the Thirty3 Victims !! They’ve got awesome tunes, great guitar sound (i’m a sucker for great guitar sound haha :p).

The main problem shooting these guys are the lighting.

The venue didn’t provide good enough lighting to allow us produce good clean crisp photos.

That is why lots of these photos i took are either in black/white colour or sepia colour

Good lighting = good photos.
I could’ve gotten away with a bit of flash, but i didn’t have it with me yesterday.

Canon 16-35mm F2.8L was used the first band, switched to sigma there after.
