More merriment than you can shake a stick at!!!
Once again Rochester’s annual Sweeps festival is back full of all the characters, noise and beer its famous for.
Merry men and women dancing, The Bruncles and a winged steampunkette caught my eyes this year. Enjoy
Taken on the last Sunday of the festival using 20sec exposures at F18 to truly capture the glow and movement of the rides as they lit up the night.
Leading up to the big VW Festival in Folkestone this late July The Objectors rehearse their set list at DEF Studios at Chatham Dockyards this weekend.
Always looking to express their unique dub style The Objectors are branching out in different mediums such a video to connect further with their rapidly growing fanbase. This Sunday consisted of me trying to re-acquaint myself with video after several years away from the record button as the gang smoothed out some tracks from the recent online release of their debut album Overruled whilst I cautiously avoided tripping over leads. The photography was taken whilst the video camera rolled on tripod in the corner with a 2 speedlites set up with diffusers.
Rochester once again hosted its ever growing festival The Sweeps. With more stages for busking this year there was a broader variety for everyone to see and participate in. The Bruncles were playing and many a Morris man and woman were out in mass amongst a crowd in its thousands. The images within this post are part of a larger project to be revealed soon regarding the art of using a fixed 50mm lens and why it is still is one of the most essential lenses you could ever own and one of the cheapest. Enjoy.
In the midst of many things after our holiday in Calella last year I forgot to process several days of photography I took back then.
So here’s a few street shots, foot-stomping flamenco dancers, dogs and jousters.
