This was taken when I photographed Crooked Colours at The Enmore. Kayex was one of the support acts and I felt their performance was a bit lacking. Various reasons why I won’t get into here, but the audience was enjoying them and that’s what counts at the end of the day.
In looking at this photo I’ve just realised that I’ve managed to make The Enmore look smaller than it is, which is kind of interesting. In part I think it’s due to how the main light frames Kayex and the audience. There’s a lot of dark and not much detail so everything looks more enclosed, I think.
This is my submission into the two hundred-and-forty-seventh Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. The theme for this one is “Backlit”.
The host of the Lens-Artists challenges cycles weekly between the following people:
Week 1 – Tina
Week 2 – Patti
Week 3 – Ann-Christine aka Leya
Week 4 – Amy
Week 5 – John Steiner
Week 6 – Sofia Alves
Week 7 – Anne Sandler
Week 8 – Donna
Week 9 – Guest host
Leya is curating this one. Sofia is curating the next one and the theme has been pre-announced as “Mood”.
The challenges are fun to engage with. The themes are specific enough to keep some focus whilst loose enough to allow room for interpretation. I recommend participating as it’s a fun community to be engaged with and it’s a good way to focus on subject. If you don’t participate, you should still check out what others of the Lens-Artists community are submitting.
I hope you enjoy.
Beautifully done SH, I loved this one.
I love the balance of this with the lights on the top and the shadowy silhouettes of the people .
SH, I really like everything about your picture! To me, the black background beautifully sets the stage. Ceiling lights create a semi-circle and then there is the contrasting angle of light. This directs my eyes down to the musicians who are subtly outlined by the lights. A great composition, you captured this scene perfectly, I love it!!
Excellent shot! The light is perfect.
