Older stuff

A couple of good friends of mine were gigging in The Carlisle in Hastings, and I went down to spend the weekend there.

It's hard taking photographs of a band, cos they're always moving, and especially in a dark pub. It was either really long exposures, or use the flash. I don't like flash photography. The flash completely overwhelms the ambient light - what little of it there is - and often sucks the personality out of the scene. On the other hand, the lighting was so uneven, basically just a few floor-level spots, that with a long exposure some parts are nastily over-exposed. I guess when I finish readingread the manual I might be able to sort that out.
