To kick off last weekend, I was at Concorde2 in Brighton to shoot noise-pop duo Blood Red Shoes at their homecoming show. I was shooting the gig for the Brighton-based ‘XYZ Magazine’ and the venue was absolutely rammed. Oddly enough, I realised it was almost two years exactly since I last shot Blood Red Shoes at the same venue – you can check out the shots HERE!
From a photography perspective, this duo’s set uses a lot of backlighting, which can make a photographer’s job more challenging since there’s very little light landing on the front of vocalist/guitarist Laura-Mary and drummer/vocalist Steven. However, it looks great during the live performance, and you can get some interesting effects if you alter your shooting method and look for action and silhouettes.
