This Wednesday will mark one month since I started collaborating with Boxout.fm.
(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.
Find out more about them here.
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.
