January wrapup

January was a strange month. Everything seemed to be either really really awesome or really really rubbish, there was no inbetween. Cat Power, Mayer Hawthorne, Ronan Keating and Grandmaster Flash.

A few quick shots from a roll I picked up the other day. This one had been sitting in the camera for months before I finished it at an Eskimo Joe show a week or so ago, and I couldn’t even really remember what was on it! Turns out it was photos taken at the launch for Nathan Gaunt’s latest CD at the Fly By. They were all absolutely terrible, ridiculously overexposed, and I’ve got no real explaination for it. This is the first roll of ISO3200 I’ve actually SHOT at ISO3200 (I accidentally rated the last roll at ISO1600, and things were obviously a bit blown out), so I was expecting a little bit better. I suspect the meter had been changed from Spot to Center Weighted, but I don’t remember doing it, so I’ve got no idea how it happened.


I expected them to be grainy (obviously), but I did get a bit ‘Woah!’ when I picked up the prints. Looks like it was snowing inside the venue. I’ve only got one roll of ISO3200 left, and somehow I don’t think I”ll be restocking. The grain does add some character to some shots, but in these days of ultra-low digital noise it just looks WEIRD.
