This weekend I went down to The Wheatsheaf in Oxford to check out some local bands and take some photos. I’ll be honest and say it’s not something I’ve done much of in my life (the last time I was there was over 10 years ago!) so felt a little out of place at first but soon settled in. It’s definitely something I’ll do again, and somewhere I really recommend going. Oxford has a brilliant and diverse music scene and it was a great night out for just £3.
Shooting bands is a lot of fun, but it is really difficult to do well. The lighting isn’t that great, there’s the obvious risk of a lively audience bouncing around and/or getting in the way of your shot, as well as other photographers to try and work around. It’s a challenge!
Here are a few of my pics from the evening:
