Some photographs from last week, when I went to see Gotye at Bush Hall last week, supported by the excellent Rod Thomas.

I love taking photographs of gigs; I think it might be my favourite genre to work in. I’ll never go purely for the photography, though; I have to enjoy the music too. It’s why I’ll always make an effort to indicate to any artist that catches my eye that I’m really enjoying what they’re doing – you’ll see me tapping my feet or grinning whilst I shoot, if only to indicate that I’m doing this for more than the images. I also find that I tend to take better pictures of artists I’m enjoying more.

I think I got some good pictures; the gig itself was great fun, too. I’m liking the new sensor’s low-light capabilities a lot.

    Nice set. Bush Hall’s a really nice venue to shoot in.

    Good captures of the drummer — I almost always find drummers hardest to catch at gigs as there’s usually so much obscuring the view of them.
