Karnataka - The Oakwood Centre Rotherham - 15 May 2004

Last Modified On 03/11/2004
It seem's unlikely now that I will get around to writting a gig review for this one. It was an excellent gig though with 4 tracks I had not heard before. 2 I believe were on the new live Strange Behaviour album which I got on the night.

Since the Oakwood is a very crowd friendly venue I got chance to play with my Digitial Camera a Monolta Dimage S414. I had almost decided it would not be any good for photos at gigs. I don't like using the flash as it annoys others and whites everything out. I was getting very poor results without the flash though, I cartainly wasn't getting the 1 in 4 passable shots I normally get with my film camera. In final desparation I had another look through the manual settings on the camera. I switched Exposure Mode to Manual. Left focus on AutoFocus and put the ISO onto 400. I then noticed I was able to control the shutter speed and I played around for sometime with this and by my standards got some reasonable results. Some of which are below.

My daughters Becky and Abbie were at the gig. So was Zoe but she stood with us at this point.
