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.
