Saturday night was a sold out show celebrating the release of a new album titled "Through The Fog" by Shadowhand. The show took place at St.Alban's Anglican Church which was an interesting location for a concert, but boy was it beautiful. The Interior lighting and architecture was nice, most guests were seated at the church pews or chairs at the very front, which made for a nice sit down and relax and listen to the chill music vibe.
The first band that played Saturday night was actually a solo set from the group Merganzer performed by, Mika Posen. She was fun to watch because she would play an instrument and then flick a switch and the sounds would repeat and she would play along with it creating wonderful music.
The second band that played that night was The Heavy Medicine Band. I really enjoyed photographing the lead singer Keturah Johnson because of the emotions she put into her performance.
Last but not least, Shadowhand! This band was awesome! All the bands were awesome!
Overall a really enjoyable night, might have to see these bands again sometime! I'm actually going to see The Heavy Medicine Band again on May 12th 2018 at the 27 club, to see Amos The Transparent's new album release live.
Friday night, I photographed my first concert for the Ottawa Showbox at Bar Robo. Both bands that played that night are from from Montreal, QC. Faze is a psych punk band, and Priors is an indie garage punk band. Overall, it was a fun time to shoot, though for next time I might try using a small flash.
Back in February, I was at the bus stop I take to go to Algonquin, while waiting for my bus another one pulls up and someone gets on it and I only realized who it was till after they already boarded it. It was my old friend Angelo Leo who I haven't seen in 6 or so years, I got in contact with him afterwards and found out he was having a music gig at a pizzeria at Landsdowne later that month. Concert and Event photography is something I always loved doing but never really got the chance to shoot with a DSLR before. I decided to try and photograph my friends funk band "A937" which is named after a music practice room number the group likes to book, at Carleton University.
It was nice to meet up with an old friend who I haven't talked to in person for years, the band played nice funky tunes for around 3 hours throughout the night, starting the gig off with a full house of around 80+ people dining.
