We had to dash out between traffic to get this one! we'd wait for a red light and the six of us would literally run out, take the shot, and run back to safety. The sky was overcast, and backlighting is pretty obvious in this one! Two Sunpak 383's triggered by Skyports and held by a couple of the band's friends. The sunpaks were snooted, and our helpers were sometimes too concerned about oncoming traffic to point the light accurately. Someone hit their horn and the guy with the guitar responded in typical rock star fashion! Pretty cool. Looking at this shot now, I should have worked harder on eliminating all the clutter in the background. Electrical wires, poles, parked cars. I learn something new every shot.
Brendan O'Shea spent 20 years as a musician, spending most of his time in Canada, the USA and Japan working with some of the world's great musicians. When kids came along, it was suddenly time to grow up and get a "real" job. So it was off to Swinburne Uni followed by a career in design and photography. Music production still plays a major role in his professional and personal life. He also prefers to speak in the third person.
