Timing, Mood and Light in the Moment

Posted in Brixton, Chiaroscuro, and Music Photography


Last night, I was shooting at the Jamm in Brixton for Courtney Pine’s Mary Seacole fundraiser gig. My favourite shot from the night is of the violinist from the support act, The Portraits. I’m fascinated with chiaroscuro, the strong contrast between light and dark and low light overall and what can be captured if I push the technical limits of my camera. I like the challenge and the painterly effects that can come up.

I’m afraid the rest of the shots have been benchmarked for commissions and elsewhere so you’ll have to wait for those!
