Having recently switched over to some new editing software I’ve been on an even more nostalgic than average kick for going back and re-developing old RAW files. This is a set from late 2008. It was the second time I had photographed Black Actress, and I don’t recall if I had better or worse stage access than the first show – but my photos were definitely better with this one. I completely understand why some photographers love photographing bands. To be honest, had I ever had any demand for it with enough compensation to make a living I’d probably consider doing more. In the Covid-era photos like these feel very distant to me.
