I went to The KVB last night, it was very good. Their show was impeccable, very moody and sexy. Dim lights (which makes the photographer in me sigh heavily). The opening band was okay-ish but had better lights in that regard!

I'll post the photos tomorrow. In the meantime, here are those from A Place To Bury Strangers.

The rest of the album is here.

Another very, very good concert. I must say I wasn't super familiar with them, as it isn't the music I generally enjoy listening to at home, but would rather experience live. The sound again was perfect (both La Maroquinerie and Le Petit Bain rarely disappoint). I half expected to be bored after some time with super long guitar noise songs but the concert actually went by very fast. The room was packed and the crowd lively. Blurry Mountain, the opening act, were also very good and complimented the APTBS show perfectly.

It was probably my most challenging concert shooting up to this day. The performers moved A LOT, and the lights were non existent for most of the show, excepted for two video projectors on each side of the stage. Which means no auto-focus (I'm very bad at manual focus. I blame my glasses, and I need to try getting daily contacts for that purpose, because I can't see properly in the viewfinder). So I rolled with it and allowed myself to shoot blurry images and tried to capture movement the best I could. In post production, I amped up the contrast and colour saturation, which is practically the polar opposite of what I've been doing so far. And I'm pretty happy with the result! Quite outside of my comfort zone. Jill gave me solid advice and I'm trying less to aim for photographic "perfection" and more to try and capture the moment.


Yesterday, I listened to Gabi Delgado, HEALTH, Encephalon and BQA (while trying to keep my cool as I was wrestling with our dying washing machine, ugh).
