Thank you again to Heavy Magazine for sending me to shoot 'Breaking Orbit + Supports' on July 11 in Melbourne.
I've never seen the support bands before, however I was highly impressed by both 'Black Sea Of Trees' and 'Gatherer' as they went about laying a platform for what was to become a beautifully clean and powerful performance from 'Breaking Orbit.'
The lighting was fantastic and made such a big difference to my shooting options, both for clarity and blending of different colours which ultimately provided a great variation to many of the images. Often you will attend pub gigs or venues of a small nature which tend to have very limited lighting options, I too thought that this venue would provide similar hurdles however it was far from that, offering me options for blue, magenta, purple and blue tones amongst most of the images.
Shoot complete, and it was a real pleasure to be able to stand there and work with such a great lighting setup, not to mention the charismatic nature of the bands which provided a lot of character in the images.
