The Smooth Operator

The Smooth Operator
Sade - Sydney Entertainment Centre - 9th December 2011

Sade is one smooth operator.  Dressed entirely in black – as was her supporting band – she looked as smooth as she sounded.  Tonight saw me photographing again for Live Guide at the Sydney Entertainment Center.  It was the first time that I had photographed there and was also the first time that I had photographed from ‘back of house’.  Ordinarily you shoot bands from a photographers pit between the stage and the first row of the audience.  This time though I was about 40 metres back from the stage in front of the mixing desk. I didnt mind though it just meant I got to use some lenses that I dont usually use in this type of an environment.  Whilst we normally get to photograph for the first three songs, tonight saw us restricted to just two.  So I cant really tell you too much about the show or music – but the first two songs sounded awesome!

    I’ll be shooting at show at the SEC next week. I was told it’ll be from the sounds desk and I was just wondering if they let you guys bring in tripods etc. I know it’ll take up space so it’s probably a no ay..?
