Well, that was a properly busy weekend. I'd been a bit nervous about doing a talk to a photography group about music pics for a few weeks. Anyway, I did it and it seemed to go alright. I quite liked doing it after all, even though I blew my script out of the water. I am not sure I convinced anyone that having a go at taking pics at The Library or The Cockpit was actually a good idea. I used a load of images from the last two years and the process of putting it together was quite encouraging. The pics I took at the beginning of 2011 look like a different photographer to the ones from summer 2012 (In my opinion at least). I thought back to the Olympics and the lessons about just improving of your personal bests. Eventually, keep doing that and you never know how good you could be.
The day wrapped up with a trip to the West Yorkshire Playhouse costume department, which was a blast. I really don't know why folks go to fancy dress shops in Leeds rather then there. It has the very best Elvis outfit ever! I will hopefully pop up a few pics from there on my Facebook place.
Today was entirely different. The fabulous Eureka Machines were working on a video for a new song and had asked me to pop down and take some pics. Ash TV were making the video and it was really interesting to see them work. I love their stuff.
Eureka Machines have been a bit of a fixture of the last couple of years for me. I love the energy and sheer showmanship that they bring to any performance. I won't say much about the video, other then it was a fab afternoon meeting some lovely folk supporting a band that deserve to reap the rewards of their efforts...
This week has loads of planning for a video project next weekend and the beginning of a string of gigs that last til Christmas. Main priority is to get my PC working again as the power exploded and I currently can't edit pics! Nightmare!!!
