Demakes Apparel - Work in Progress design by ICON Revolution. Worn on stage by Autumn in Disguise at Hevy Festival 2011.
I originally edited this shot for Autumn in Disguise, but i thought i would post it on tumblr too as im still looking at it a week later and smiling. As old as the idea of selective colouring is, i think it really works on this picture. Thanks to Demakes Apparel for getting me in the pit, Autumn in Disguise for being so great to photograph and Honour Over Glory for giving me a wikid tee that i could do this edit on.
Autumn in Disguise @ Hevy Festival 2011
On Thursday i decided that i wanted to attend the A Day to Remember gig in Bristol academy. As with all of my great gig decisions, i had left it far to late to get a ticket and they had been selling for £60+ on eBay for the past few weeks. I wasn’t interested in spending loads of money on a ticket before Thursday because i was only interested in seeing Bayside, who were supporting. It was only a few hours before the gig that i realised how much i really wanted to see them, and how a nice random night out was something that i really needed. I headed home from work, put on some skinny jeans (yeah, ok i know… new image) and headed out the door to the venue to try and either walk the line and try and buy a ticket or spend the ridiculous money on a ticket from a tout. Before arriving at the gig, the night took a turn that i did not expect. I soon found myself on the guest list for ADTR and hanging out with a group of new and very cool people. Both Bayside and ADTR were very very good, but were far outweighed by the company of the night. Listening to the knowledge, passion and success stories of these guys was so amazing and inspiring. Although i didn’t get chance to take any photos, the night did more for my photography that i could have ever imagined. It gave me the buzz that i could take my photography to the next step this year, and the drive to try out your dreams, it also gave me some great contacts for people who i would love to work with and who i have so much to learn from. So cheers guys:
