    Cracking night, but I would like to have a word with the lighting engineer.

    It looks as though you got the best out of some adverse lighting conditions, Steve. These situations are always a bit tricky, but that looks pretty damned difficult.

    I'm slightly embarrassed to admit that I'd never heard of Blowzabella, until I saw your post! :oops:

    Cheers Peter.
    Bloody bright cyan, dimmish orangey-yellow and a bright spot on Jo, who has a very white face anyway. The Fudgie made a damn good job to start with, though.
    Missed bass and melodeon players, tried to get some dancers, but just too dark.
    Go and see them if you get a chance; mix of trad French and own stuff with a French flavour.

    Yes difficult conditions & good subject blur achieved :)
    I have heard of Blowzabella, as my elder brother knows/is known by the Hurdy-Girdy player. I get the impression that's a much smaller world than IR photography...

    I wonder if the lighting engineer was struggling because of the black clothes? I often wonder why black is a chosen colour of clothes as it can make it really difficult to see the players on stage. Having said that, those shots are really nice, and dare I say it, I like the lights :)

    Thanks Dan, but for taking photographs, he’s going to die if he does it again.
