Last night, I hated this shot. Tonight, I have done a complete 180, and I really like it. It’s more or less the only acceptable shot I have of British Sea Power (a beat combo popular with the young folk of Britain), but it’s one of the gig shots I’m happiest with. I’ll add that this one looks better, bigger, so click through to see the original size on flickr. Even that’s only fractionally larger – I still won’t make anything bigger that 800 pixels wide available on-line, but it gives a slightly better idea.
I’ve got the original filling my screen, and I’m well happy (for a value of happy – I’d like him to be a bit clearer, and etc etc). I’ve actually got several versions, with different filters and colour effects applied, and I’m trying to decide which one to put on my portfolio site, but I thought I’d shot you the one that’s only been slightly tweaked, just to up the contrast a little, and make colours pop a bit more.
