Something slightly different today, as instead of a single image I’m going to post up the ones I took on Saturday night at a gig at the Vibe Bar on Brick Lane. Hoochinoo showcase acts from the UK’s underground alternative hip hop and urban music scene – not my usual cup of tea, but with beer and the chance to break out the new speedlite it’s something I decided to leave the house for.

Well I say that this type of music isn’t my cup of tea, but I don’t see why not as all of the acts were actually really good, and Def D Fires were certainly one of the better, and certainly one of the most energetic, live acts I’ve seen in a while. All in all it was a good night out.

Oh, and in case you were wondering – that is indeed one of my beers in the image above and, no, it did not taste like it looks.

    1. Thanks. This fisheye is not a quality build. It’s manual f/stop, doesn’t really have anything other than infinity focus and can produce a lot of chromatic aberrations. Saying that, it was cheap, it’s really good fun to use and is fit for the purpose at the moment…it was bought for urbex really.

  1. They are pretty fuckin’ good like, some really good action shots of the artists on stage. Sounds like the music would have been good as well, making me miss London a little bit now, git ;o) Sxx

  2. Murphys, your talents with a camera are second to nun. Over the past 3 years you have improved in ways I did not see happening.

    This set of picks just goes to show how amazing your vision has become.

    I cannot wait to see what you are creating in years to come.
