This image is an effective establishing shot for that event:
It showcases the venue and decorations and included the band. It also provided variety in the style and subject in photographing a gig. It gave me the opportunity to learn from the obstacles I overcame. Katie Collins, who Chloe interviewed previously at Wychwood Festival, is performing on stage with a band, which she says that she is not used to doing.
“It was a fun night and good opportunity to report on the newspaper.”
I included a photograph of her interviewing someone for more context and to bring her into the images in a more visual way because it might not be clear without captions that Chloe was working at the event.
The lighting and composition in this photograph were effective. His white shirt stands out against the dark background, and the Frog and Fiddle sign is very clearly in the background. Using the available lighting created a really atmospheric photograph.
