Sofasonic

I caught Sofasonic when they headlined Sunday Live at Hertford Corn Exchange. The locally-based four-piece are recently back from The States and have a handful of gigs lined up for the rest of the year.

I’d not seen Sofasonic before but any band with a female bassist has got to be good and they certainly didn’t disappoint, tearing through a 50 minute set.

You can find more photos on my Facebook page. You can check out the band’s website at sofasonic.co.uk.

Food & Drink Festival

Last week I covered Hertford’s first Food & Drink Festival – a two day event featuring markets, demonstrations and exhibitions.

As well as the usual Saturday charter market there was also a Farmers’ Market of local produce such as fruit and vegetables, bread, cheese, cakes and locally brewed beers and cider. In Market Place Andrei Lussmann and Mat Gomes presented creative kitchen cookery demonstrations whilst the museum staged an exhibition titled A Brief History of Food & Drink.

There were plenty of photo opportunities during the weekend and food makes a very appealing subject! In addition to the food photography, the displays and demonstrations were fun to capture.

The gallery here shows a small selection of some of the photos I took. The creative cookery demonstrations were aided by an overhead mirror which provided some excellent views of the chefs at work.

I captured this chance image at a music festival earlier in the summer. I was struck by both the outfit and the pose and immediately snapped.

The only editing I performed was to crop the image, apply some negative clarity in Adobe Camera RAW and tweak the colour curves. Finally I added a vignette.
