The Gobal Battle Of the Bands (GBOB) 2011

Near the end of the last week at Arenele Romane in Bucharest there was a big music event: The Global Battle Of the Bands, or shortly GBOB, where a bunch of bands came to sing, gain exposure and maybe “hit the jackpot”. I attended it only on the semifinals, Thursday and Friday, not also Saturday on the finals, when the bands were the same (well, a subset of), the light better but the placement worse (having to fight for the photo pit with a TV crew, which had priority).

Abigail website up

Remember my project with Abigail? The CD cover was only part of it, now the second part is public, their website is up and the members page is populated with my pics. Yay!

Masca at the subway

…to boldly go where no man has gone before

No, is not the bridge of starship USS Enterprise and there is no captain Picard around, this is the dispatch center of the Bucharest subway, it was open to the public Saturday at the 32 years anniversary, since the first station was opened.

Sweet testing

Today I picked my lens (“the normalizer”, if you are curious which one) from the shop, where it was taken for calibration. The light at the shop was not good enough, so I postponed any serious testing for the following day, but on my way home I passed by this window, so I had to take a “test” (night shot, hand held camera, trough a glass window):

Tides from Nebula

Again with the help of my friends from StudioRock.ro I attended a concert, this time it was Tides from Nebula and it happened at Kulturhaus in Bucharest. The light was awful (why do they have such awful lights in pub and club concerts?) and the place was crowded with about 8 photographers, so I did what I could:

Subway tango

It happened yesterday at the Unirii 1 subway station and it was kind of like a flash mob: they plugged the sound system, danced for about 10-15 minutes and then went away. Passengers admired them, took photos and a few of them even joined the dance.
