I’d just got hold of some Kentmere 400 film and thought I’d give it a try especially with pushing it to ISO 1600. I haven’t done a gig in a while so it seemed a good opportunity. This time I had the Nikon FM with F/1.4 lenses at my disposal. Unfortunately the day before my 50mm F/1.4 broke and was stuck at F/1.4. I decided to use my 85mm F/1.4 instead so I could use some flash as well.
After Simon left Population Four the future seemed very uncertain. All the band members seemed so close it was impossible to imagine anyone else filling the drum stool. As of today that uncertainty has ended for the worse with the announcement that Population Four is to disband. I’ve been photographing them for years but now it’ll be no more. This is another blow for Preston after last month with March and Stormcorporation also calling it a day.
Population Four’s last gig with Simon are now up on the Rampage Facebook page. Check them out.
Today was Population Four’s last gig with their drummer Simon played at Rampage at Roper Hall in Preston. Population Four has been renowned all around Preston and one the acts most likely to break through and circumstances have come in their way. We shall see what the future holds.
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.
