La Shark at the 333 Club, London

La Shark at the 333 Club, London

Above is a photograph of Pete Sach playing for the first time as part of La Shark. It was also my first attempt at photographing musicians in concert. I decided not to take my SLR along as I was not sure whether I would be allowed in with it. I took my compact camera instead - it is a 7 megapixel Canon Ixus 75. It allows some manual control of it's settings and so I set the white balance to tungsten and used the highest available ISO setting of 1600. I did not use flash. I got as close as I could to the stage and took over a hundred shots. Most were failures - due to poor framing and poor lighting mainly. The usable photographs needed cropping to make them usable. Next time, I hope to try using my SLR. And La Shark are a very good band - look out for them.

From my vantage point, I could not get photographs of all six members of La Shark. Above are the members that I could get close enough to photograph.
