My work with Boxout FM

This Wednesday will mark one month since I started collaborating with

(Note: it's been over a year now since I started working with Boxout Fm).

Think of them as India's equivalent to Boiler Room

For a dude like me, who's forever been on the fringe of electronic music, Boxout served as a perfect way for me to get more into that subculture. I was always interested in learning more about the culture, but i never knew where to start. Boxout threw me into the deep end.

Coincidentally, I had something to offer to them, and a beautiful symbiotic relationship has since developed.

So far I've had a blast shooting with them even thought it has been slightly challenging shooting in such low light. 

The day of my first gig, I debated about shooting with a mounted flash, and after mucking around a few times with it, I decided I'd go au natural. 

The flash does work, mind you, and I've got nothing against using it in other situations. But, I felt it was right to capture the gigs in the natural light beaming out of the projector, because it captures the vibe of the place so so well.

(Note: I have since been shooting with a mounted flash, and the results have been astounding). 

Also, it forces me to be on my toes because I never know how the light is going to shine on the performer's face. 

Creatively, it's been an awesome experience because I've had a lot of room for experimentation, and I'm enjoying the process of establishing a certain niche within that field of photography.
