Photo essay : Capture reality or create your own

Proof-NeuInstallation01-Sept2011-059

All externally lit; No ambient

There’s been some articles written recently whether a camera really captures “reality” as it actually appears, or just a rendition. A rendition based on what film you are using (color vs B&W) or what digital sensor your camera has (which captures light colour slightly different from camera to camera), or what the photographer saw/perceived. This got me thinking about my recent use flash photography in clubs and live concerts to capture my own version of reality.

Kinetik Festival 4 Photo Book : five days of live music photography

For the past couple of months I have been working on a photo book with images from the Kinetik Festival 4 that took place in Montreal on 19May – 23May 2011.

The book will come in two sizes. An 8″x10″ version and a 7″x7″ version. Both books will have identical content, except for the paper size.
The books will contain over 100 pages of band photos, and will be available in soft cover and hard cover versions.

Book prices and availability will be announced soon,  but rest assured that they will be reasonably priced.

A great addition to the Kinetik fan and will make a great present for any occasion, and will look fantastic on any coffee table.
