Shoot Note- Then You Suffer (27th Feb, 2015)

As you know, I have been working on a long time project on my friend's Rockabilly Band 'The Boogie Playboys', and in addition to that, I also listen to another band formed by the some members of the TBP- Then You Suffer. Although this is not my first time photographing their performance, but lately I got more into Blues, and only recently I only the story between Eric Clapton, George Harrison and Pattie Boyd. I guess maybe lately I'm in some sort of depressing state of mind...so such music and such energy caught me and touches my soul.

The gig took place in a live house in Wanchai called 'The Wanch', and it's my third or fourth time there. The place is quite small for photographing, and the places you can stand and get a clear picture is very limited. I remember the first time I went there, I had a 85mm Lens and I was shooting with Tri-X 400 (Push to 3200), and it was almost impossible to get anything great. So from that day on, I use 50mm focal length to photograph in The Wanch, because other than taking photos of the performers, it's also important to include the venue of the gig, so that it's not only a portrait, but a documentary of the fact that 'they played there'.
