Gideon Onofeghara music concert shoot

posted in: Events | 0

Gideon  Onofeghara celebrated another new CD release this week with “Grace is Here”. I was requested to take a selection of images of the event as a memory of the evening.

Although reluctant to use flash photography for this type of event Gideon had no problems allowing me to use some additional lighting, so a large number of the stage shots were shot using two Bowen lights, one either side of the stage. This allowed me to use a smaller aperture to capture a variety of shots, moving to a large aperture for the non-flash work. My 50mm prime lens was a joy to use for some of these shots although I confess an 85mm is going on the shopping list shortly.

Here is a small selection of the event showing Gideon, his singers and some of the audience enjoying the concert.
