“Seth decided to tour smaller venues and just do more shows (rather than one big show like the Forum) and had stated to me they were some of his most enjoyable shows to date. He invited me along to shoot at the 3rd Melbourne show, which was at the Toff. The venue itself is quite challenging, and he didn’t bring any external lights which made it tricky (comparatively to his other shows) I found the challenge really exciting, it was difficult to get super amazing photos but this one I am really proud of. DJ Sizzle gave me a little nod before he did a quadrupal water throw. I stepped out behind the DJ desk to get this. These shots are actually pretty tricky to nail, its always hit and miss, but this one came up really great!”
Publication: Shooting for the artist
Gear: 35mm on a Nikon D3! I also had a 85 on a D800 that night as well.
Post Process: I have a preset that I established while on tour with Seth 2 years ago that i always use for his shots, however this particular shot I pushed the contrast a little more than I usually would to really make the water stand out! 🙂
