A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting a very special all-day event featuring my good friends, The LaFontaines. Whilst bands organising their own gigs is not something to be heard of often, let alone done well, the recent wave of hot weather was on their side and the final result was executed very smoothly considering (if only the same could be said for some of my shots towards the end, but we’ll get to that later…) and involved not only the font boys themselves, but a number of awesome and soon to be not-so local bands throught the day. It all kicked off around 3pm in the heart of the city centre, and progressed into the back area of a coffee shop a little further out for some laid back acoustic business and tasty hot dogs, before winding up in Glasgow’s Queens Park Glasshouse just as the sun was going down – and available light was becoming incredibly scarce – for a full-on noisy and chaotic set. As you can see, the darker things got the higher my ISO was cranked up and – even shooting in RAW – it became almost impossible to keep things bright and continue to capture the insane crowd as one lone security guard tried to hold them all back. I had a lot of fun shooting at this and here’s to the next Big Font Day Out.
Some of the shots from it can be seen below, but as always way more can be seen over at my flickr page:
