Cheatahs, Birthdays 12th February 2014

The gigs are starting back up again, huzzah!  I was sent to Birthdays (my first ever visit) in Dalston to photograph and review Cheatahs for Shout 4 Music earlier in the week, which was pretty enjoyable.  My review is up on the Shout 4 Music website here, and the photos should be up soon.  Not the wildest of nights or best gig I’ve ever been to, but it was a pleasant evening I guess you could say!  Better than sitting at home staring at a screen for the evening in any case…

Super easy to get around and take photos inside Birthdays, even though it was busy, as the crowd were standing a couple of feet away from the front of the stage.  Too close to even try my 35mm 1.4 which I bought along for an airing, so stuck to my 17-15mm 2.8 for the whole show.  Really need to upgrade my glass as I’m getting bored of the 17-55!  Must start saving.  Here’s some pics of the gig, enjoy.

Cheatahs, Old Queen’s Head 1 August 2013

I was looking forward to going along to see Cheatahs at Old Queen’s Head as I knew from a previous visit that the lighting in there was lovely (= good for photographers) and relatively easy to get some close shots.  I was especially excited because my new pride and joy had arrived in the post – I am now the proud owner of a Canon 7D!  It took a while to get used to on the first night as a lot of the buttons were in different places than I was used to with the 1000D, so had to fiddle around in the dark with a few things, but the pictures didn’t turn out too bad.  The venue wasn’t packed to the rafters either, which was great as it was a hot evening.  Although someone needed to turn down the dry ice – my hair stank of the stuff when I got home!  Great gig though, and my first time seeing Cheatahs.  Pics below…
