Gig Photos – The Orange Circus Band

#162 of my 365 project

Took the camera with me to Horsmonden’s Summer Festival, as I was playing there with TWUNT, and The Orange Circus Band were headlining, and I like them!

The nifty 50, did catch some nice shots, in very low light, so was pleased with the results.  The biggest problem, was the lighting.  The red lights were so strong to the right of the stage, they washed out the fiddler and bass, making them look radioactive!  That’s why their shots are black and white, which fortunately look even better!

Don’t you just love it when you have a spot of fortune whilst processing in Lightroom 🙂  They liked them so much, they’re on their website too!

My365 #1

My365 Project (2017)

Just before Christmas, I decided I would attempt the photographer’s bucket list challenge – the 365!

Labelled ‘My365’, I hoping it will ensure I think photography everyday, forcing me to venture beyond what I normally do.  Having a day job and a commute, will make it a bit harder, so I’m going to have be even more creative.

I suspect I’m going to learn more about other stuff too, not just photography.  There’s the ‘getting it out there’ social media stuff to improve on; hash tags and all that jazz.  Then there’s presentation.  I’ve seen people with borders, logos, and watermarks of all varieties.  The one thing I have decided, is to experiment, rather than fret, on day 1, about my watermark.  I might not even stick to anyone style, instead choose to tweak as I go along.

I am sharing on Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, Twitter and here of course 🙂

It’s day 3, and so far I have the following.

And so it begins #365project #365 #photography
