Oisin & Malachy live @ The Jade Monkey, Adelaide

So last week I was out walking the streets with a camera, shooting without an agenda watching Adelaide start to build atmosphere before the Fringe.  Rundle street was filled with Fringe acts practicing and getting a feel for what was to come.  Those of you who know me personally will know that more often than not I love my music, raw and dirty with a blue undertone.  Having been a fan of people like Newton Faulkner and John Butler for many years, when I hear the sound of someone  (excuse the description, I only mean this semi literally) bashing the crap out of a guitar… Im going to stop and listen!

With a large crowd surrounding him, captivated by the sounds and honest rapport, Oisin & Malachy sits among an impressive street setup, filling the street with bluesy drum guitar tones.  I took a few snaps and stayed until the end of the set and made sure I bought a cd (even though the only cd player  with quality sound I have is in the Kombi which is still off road).

Hearing Malachy was playing the Jade Monkey the following Friday, I cruised by after a friend and fellow studio cohabitants Art exhibition opening at BMG. (which you should also go check out)

The support act was just finishing at this point and during the 15 minutes interval  Malachy was on the side chatting to the crowd prepping to go make some music.  We had a bit of a chat and was introduced to a couple of photographers who were there to shoot the performance.

I got a beer and the show started.  I wasn’t there to shoot, but to just check out some tunes…  However, I know myself too well and cannot resist temptation and always have some kind of camera on me, I was carrying my Fuji with a fixed 50mm prime lens.  I love this camera for its small size, silent operation and super fast 1.4 aperture, sweet for low light shooting like this.  I hear many people say that if you are too busy trying to take a picture, you are missing the moment and are not present.  Where this is the case sometimes, for me music and picture making comes hand in hand and making photographs is as much part of the moment as anything else.  To make great pictures, you have to feel the music which personally brings me closer, you listen to every beat and tone, and watch every gesture with so much more detail.  If you are not in the music, how can you photograph it?

The night of music was awesome!  Malachy has a great sense of honesty and passion in his delivery, he has an ability to bring his crowd in close and build a relationship with them with stories  about his journey via music and speech.  You come away with a feeling that you have met someone new and I think this is so important for any artist and he nails it!

So I really hope the pictures express how the evening was for you, if you were not there I hope they make you want to go to another time, you really should, if you love great music with a personable down to earth guy, get yourself along!  Music is always best when the artist plays from one place only, not a show, just an expression of self.  I caught up with Malachy after the gig for a few beers and can guarantee that what you see and hear on stage, is what you get in person and thats the key!

Cheers, Lee

The Colour of Time: WOMADelaide 2015

Looking back over last years photographs, searching for dance and performance photography for a new Portfolio Im putting together and I find these.  Taken from The colour of time performance at WOMADelaide 2015.  Memories came flooding back of the amazing atmosphere that was present during this vibrant extravaganza of dance, performance light and colour!  I fell in love with this show!  Every emotion was there, angst, fear, loneliness, comfort, excitement and pure happiness.  Bright faces of colour beam from every angle, covered in sun and paint of every hue.  Very much my highlight of WOMADelaide last year, so I’d love to share my set of pictures with you.

To all the performers, thank you so much!   http://www.thecoloroftime.org/-home-

Please enjoy…  Stay colourful!

Elder Park, Adelaide, August Fire Night 2015

So this weekend we spent the evening on Friday 14th in Elder Park, Adelaide.  A monthly gathering of fire artists meet and basically.. share some amazing skills!  The circle around the fire artists featured a warm glowing array of people and colours who were there to enjoy the evening.  The crowds of around 200 were all rugged up carrying smiles.  It was a great turn out!

Over the course of the evening, different artists took to the centre to play and show their skills which have obviously been fine tuned to such an awesome degree… But its all made to look so simple and thats the beauty!  Chatting briefly with Tim Goddard the dude behind the event, he was saying that there is a lot of practice that goes into the performance and of course much of it for beginners and more experience artist trying new techniques without fire too.

Safety is also key in an event like this and no issues what so ever happened and the whole event was trouble free with such an amazing vibe.  An awesome family friendly event

An array of cameras were present, with photographers also practicing their skills in long exposure photography.  Ive already seen some amazing light painting images with super effects that create beautiful pieces of art.  I was without a tripod as I wanted to capture some still photojournalistic images thats shows the mood of the evening in reality.  But here is a couple of links to some friends I was with who were shooting the awesome arty work. Check them out! 🙂
