Got myself a shiny new Samsung Galaxy S2 recently. As expected I’ve been giving the camera a good go as well as the apps. One thing small cameras, especially mobile phones fall down on is low light performance. I’ve just taken some pictures at a gig (and uploaded it hear while still at said gig) and I must admit they’re not too shabby at all.
An ominous start to December with the news that both March and Stormcorporation have split up. Simply problems in both bands just got to a head and that was that. I’ve been photographing Stormcorporation since their early days and have also done a photo shoot with March. Not a good sign for the Preston music scene when two big hitters suddenly fall.
Another photo of mine has been featured in the Lancashire Evening Post.
It was for a competition held by the Lancashire Evening Post to show “proud Preston” to be judged by the Lancashire Evening Post itself.
Today I’ve just finished editing the pictures from the Lancashire Market in Preston. Sent them off and started publishing to my Facebook/Flickr/Deviant Art sites. Check out the pictures on my Facebook site here.
Yesterday I learned of news that the Ship Inn in Preston has suddenly cancelled all of Ready To Rumble Unsigned gigs with immediate effect. Working with Rock On Promo they had gigs booked up every 1-2 weeks for more than 3 months ahead. Something similar happened last year but that was repealed a few months later. That time the Ship Inn went back to doing gigs at the Ship Inn again however this time round it looks like a case of once bitten twice shy. This saddens me because it was a favourite haunt for me and it is where I cut my teeth as a gig photographer for two years. There is some hope because today people gathered together to create a Facebook page called Save Our Scene (SOS). As of now it is very quickly gaining likes.
