Let there be light.... thanks Lloyd

11th February 2013

I'm going to sound like a cracked record again but I make no excuses for this.

Stating the blindingly obvious - photographers capture light!

OK, we hope to have a subject somewhere in that light to make our effort worth while :-) But the quality of the light is essential.
This is true for the successful creation of any photograph of any subject.

So it is a pleasure to work at gig photography when I have a 'lighting guy' who is equally keen on the quality of light. Guernsey has a couple of 'starmen' and I have worked with both of them over the weekend. First it was Mark Guillou at the Elysium gig.

Next on the list was Fermain Fest... at the Fermain Tavern, now there's a suprise!
This eight hour musical marathon was lit by Lloyd Hellyeah. Now Lloyd is really keen on his set-ups. I was pleased that a few weeks ago Lloyd invited me along one evening whilst he was setting up a gig so we could discuss what type of light I find works for a photog.

So what a treat it was at Fermain Fest when Lloyd turned on a few new tricks. Don't you just luv that layering. Now that's what I call lighting! I hope all the gig-goers noticed too :-) Thanks Lloyd.

You can make up your own mind if you like by checking out a few of the Galleries. I must also give a big shout to Jack Fletcher who organised Fermain Fest. Great job mate. You have set the bar really high!

Pictures are now in the Gallery and don't forget to say well done to the lighting guys next time you enjoy their work...
