This is the first of a new series of images looking at music production and performance and my experiences with both. The image above was taken at a local gig venue during a Battle of the Bands competition; the band in particular being the now-defunct Nod From Afar. This image was a nightmare to capture with no flash at my disposal, hence the insane ISO speed.
Title inspiration comes from the Mogwai album of the same name, but is subject to change depending on how many images I pick from the relevant archives.
Comments and critiques, as always, are both welcomed and appreciated.
Is it a to Mogwai?
Heh, yeah, the composition and title are both references or allusions to Mogwai. Thank-you for the favourite-list addition, I appreciate it.
The deep shadows create an intense atmosphere... it's almost liquid in it.
It's one that I am fairly happy with, considering the adverse shooting conditions. I'm not sure if there'll be many/any more from that gig.
There is the feeling of the hush before a storm, or, as put in Lord of the Rings (teehee): The deep breath before the plunge.
