Return to the Guild Hall - Julie Felix

Event - Julie Felix

Friends of Folk

At Preston's Guild Hall

Before Christmas, I had the opportunity to photography a dress rehearsal of Sleeping Beauty and it was an opportunity that I enjoyed very much. Since then I've been in contact with the Guild Hall looking for more chances to stretch my skills, low and behold I had just that option and a few more to come.

The event was a small folk concert put on by Friends of Folk and featured the singer Julie Felix. The venue was the foyer of the Guild Hall which made for a more intermate mood, not to mention some interesting lighting conditions.

So here are a few of the images from the night. I hope you enjoy -

The Empty Stage

Sound and mixing deck

Waiting to begin

From the back of the audience

Telling stories

Hitting the notes

And with emotion

And to finish on a high!

Again it was all part of a learning curve for me with this being another venture into low-light but with only once chance it getting the image. Thanks to the Canon 5d MK III and a few test shots, not the mention Canon's 70-200mm f2.8 L series lens giving me the tools I needed to do the job.

I'm looking forward to my next trip to the Guild Hall.

Until next time - Alf
