Photo Story (AD4802) – Fawner Shoot 2

On the 12th of February, an event was being held at Frog and Fiddle to showcase the musicians studying at University of Gloucestershire. Fawner was evidently one of those bands, so I was asked to come along to spend the day with them – from rehearsal to the gig. I took my speedlight with me as I knew I would need to use flash with the gig, however I had issues with it so had to go with either using the lights which were on them, or the flash on my camera, so I am not overly happy with the images from the evening, however the next time I will make sure that all of my equipment is up to standards.

I like the above image because of the shallow depth of field. I feel this image would work quite well as an establishing shot in a photo story. It was taken with an ISO of 800, at f5.6 and a shutter speed of 1/30.

I like the fact that these two images are quite dimly lit, I feel it adds to the aesthetic of the band in a way, and I feel the limited highlights are quite affective in making a simple frame still look good. These were both taken with an ISO of 800, the first was taken at f5.6 at 1/60, and the second one was taken at f5.6 at 1/80.

This image is clearly quite similar to a couple taken at the first rehearsal, however I like how as this was daytime, there is a little bit more light to work with from the window. This was taken at f5.6 at a shutter speed of 1/30. (Again, at an ISO of 800).

The evening images, as mentioned before, were taken using my pop up flash, which didn’t allow for huge amounts of detail to be lit in the photos. However, I like how the colours in Conor’s top pop in this image. I feel those are what draws your eyes into the image. This was taken with an ISO of 400, at f18, and a shutter speed of 1/160.

I chose to use black and white for this image because I feel she looked very “grungy” in it and I felt it warranted a bit of black and white to add to this idea. I like the simplicity of this image and feel it would work as a big image in a photo story. This was taken at an ISO of 400, at f9 and a shutter speed of 1/160.

I feel this photo does well in adding to the idea of being quite a grunge-like band. I like how the yellow in her shirt and the pink in her hair are highlighted, and overall it’s a very candid image. It was taken at an ISO of 400, an F-stop of 13 and a shutter speed of 1/160.

This was one of the images taken using the available lighting in the room, but I feel it really worked. Similar to one of my previous images of Conor, the lighting allows for small amounts to be highlighted, but I feel it perfectly shows the passion going into the music, and there’s also a slight bit of movement in there, which all ties in with this passion. This was taken at an ISO of 800, at f5.6 and a shutter speed of 1/30.

Again, much like the previous image, this represents the passion going into playing music. I like how there are clearly things breaking up the image, but you can still see the intended subject. This was taken at an ISO of 800, F-stop of f13 and a shutter speed of 1/50.
