I haven't been doing much recently, so any job that my agency offers I do. I've photographed a few acts at G-A-Y in London. It's a new venue which moved sometime towards the end of 2008. In the new venue you can't hang around back stage, which mean you have to wait in a room with all the club goers, normally very loud music, hot and sweaty. Not great. Last time I was there I photographed Lily Allen which was great, getting to see her live and up close. This occasion was a duo called Booty Luv, not so sure I was over keen on their music, I've heard worse. They went down really well as their music was well suited to a night club atmosphere. Available light was very poor, it never is great a live show, here, they don't object to camera flash. This shot was with no flash. With such slow shutter speeds, you get blur from the movement of the people in the shot. Walking about taking general landscape shots its quite acceptable to keep the shutter speed above the focal length. When shooting moving objects such as people, this method doesn't work quite so well. Shots with flash kill and atmosphere from the night, but will still appeal to news and magazine media, plus you can use faster shutter speeds and freeze the action for a clear shot.
