This week sees the launch of #Mosmoments a twitter campaign where fans tweet their favourite moments inside the club. Its an interesting campaign and ties in with my thoughts on shooting venues.
As I have mentioned previously for me I want to shoot the vibe - not this posed in pretty dress nonsense, and this week I really wanted to look more into this. Now I am a huge fan of colour, for me I do find black and white can be used as a way of covering ones mistakes when it comes to colours and exposure compared to colour. However I have recently fallen in love with the look again, and so my current events will start to feature this more and more over the next few months.
So onto shooting moments – This weekend was a joy to shoot at Ministry, with a general mixture of the crowd just carrying on dancing. I felt at one with the vibe and could really focus on watching and waiting for something special to happen. It’s a wonderful feeling when you see something about to happen, an individual with a huge smile waiting for a beat to drop or a pretty girl being carried across the dance floor by her loving partner.
Most of my work is now all shot on my 1DX and 50mm 1.2 combo. I just love the isolation I get shooting wafer thin depth of field, combined with the contrast and clean look of black and white.
This is what is special……
