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
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
