Just a preview. The rest of the photos from the SteamShipKillers release party should come tomorrow!
Kodak Tri-X 400, Leica 90mm f/2.5 Summarit-M. Rough edit of the photo, I’ll probably come back to this one and re-post it at some point.
Last night there was a stellar line up at TT the Bear’s for the Boston Underground Film Festival Tokyo Steampunk opening party: Owl Watcher, Jaggery, Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys, and HUMANWINE.
There are a total of forty one pictures in the full gallery. You should look through it, you’ll feel good! I present you with a few highlights:
If you’re one one of the musicians that I photographed I will happily give you un-watermarked, full-resolution images and rights to use them. Please let me know if you’re interested!
There was a delightful night of eclectic music on Thursday at The Armory Cafe. Performing was The Boston Typewriter Orchestra:
And last, but certainly not least, Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys:
There are a couple more in the gallery.
Post-processing these was slightly challenging – it felt like there was twenty million different lights in each shot, each with a different and weird color temperatures. I could have made different choices but ultimately I decided to try and make sure everyone’s skin tones looked vaguely natural; getting that wrong was more jarring, in my opinion, than any other option.
My muse was elusive at Friday night’s Jaggery & Sxip Shirey show at Cafe 939, but a couple came out well enough to share. I’m particularly happy with this first portrait of Sxip as he listened to Jaggery play:
Friday night I had the pleasure of attending a kick-ass show at Lily Pad in Inman Square – Kayla Oberlin opened for Kim Boekbinder, who was also joined by Emperor Norton’s Stationary Marching Band!
I’m not going to play music critic aside from saying it was awesome and you should listen to their music and buy their stuff; instead I’ll show you the pictures I took:
There’s even a couple more in the gallery.
Go to their shows! Buy their music!
