Thursday night in Prahan... I have stumbled into a time-warp.. somewhere in some kind of 1980's era, but the Strokes exist.
The Dwarf sent me along to onesixone lounge bar to photograph Fire! Fire!, High Fangs and The Fever.
I decided on going back to the regular lenseses this time around, but with the 70-200 f2.8 on the 50D and 17-35 f2.8 on the 5DMkii and the addition of the 50 f1.8 which I don't think I even used - I eventually switched the 70-200 to the 5D and the other to the other.
The light was SHIT.. there was alot of red, with some red and a dash of red thrown in for good luck - red is the enemy, especially at high ISO's but what can ya do? (convert them all to black and white!)
The bands were good, I'm still wondering why Fire! Fire! spent their whole set winning us over with (probably the best on the night) originals, only to play a Strokes cover to finish with!
The Fever are just a little too Strokes-ey for me, don't get me wrong, I love the Strokes, but one is enough. Hopefully they grow into their own sound, but all in all, a really impressive first gig.
