I must be a little warped sometimes.
The camera tells the truth, they say.
I don't think so.
Sometimes, it is how the photographer
that dictates the moods and how things
will turn out in the end.
This is a supposed happy and gay band.
This is Soda Green. 苏打绿.

Sorry guys, my melancholy spilled over.

Maybe it's true, the camera does not lie.

I like #4 and #5.
#4 has a fabulous composition. Thank u for playing with the grain. We are now under the absurd diktat of "no noise - no grain". Your pictures shows admirably the nice effects we can get with noisy black and white.

#5 also good for composition. Harsh light, high contrast. Good idea to put the singer to the right ( how many action photographers would simply center and post...)

In #3 the eyes appear out of focus, maybe you want it , but not workin for me.

I would not comment the other pictures although intersting, i think they correspond to what people like and expect ( good lens,bla bla) but less artistically thought. So i don't care.

Regards

I like some of their songs, very meaningful lyrics.
Especially this one called "小宇宙", it's exactly what
I feel sometimes when I walk on the streets in Singapore.

Really? I have their album but never got down to listening to it. I know their producer well, and that is why I was there to shoot them.

Hi all, i m addicted to their "小情歌" now, like it alot. Anyway, isit a local group?

Oh ya, the photos were great especially the monochrome ones. For the grainy shot, a little too much for me. Thanks for sharing.

They are Taiwanese.

I guess Canon did a good job with marketing. LOL. Well, grain does need a little getting used to.

I will let the band know about them having Singaporean followers. That should bring a smile to their faces. Yes, I shot them in Taiwan. They have progressed from a newbie underground band to the mainstream now. Not too bad for 2 years of hard work.

There are a few places in Taipei where you can see all these indie bands make their rounds. When I was staying there, I was quite close to this Riverside Cafe at Roosevelt Road, they have performances every week. That's where I got to know about bands like Soda Green, Zayin, Lost in Vega etc etc. Some of them are really good.

Yes, it is great to know and meet these bands in my course of work. And it is rewarding to see the indie bands go all the way to mainstream and making it.

There are a few more new places opened, but most of them are pretty run down. But true, the club at Roosevelt Road is pretty good to spot new talents, and there is always Witch House.

:nono: Below the belt statement... :nono:

:cheers:
Sorrie. I was feeling wicked.

Thanks Kongo. Though we have such differing styles, but to get a thumbs up from you, it really means something.
