Helena Blackman @ Turner Sims

I had the great pleasure of meeting and photographing West End star and runner-up in Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s TV show “How do you solve a problem like Maria” on Friday. She was appearing at the Turner Sims Concert Hall in Southampton, the place of her birth. Artists tell me in adds extra stress to perform in front of your ‘home crowd’ but Helena coped well and left the audience wanting more of her fine voice.

I short everything on the Lumix GH2 (mostly at 1600iso) and the recent upgrade to the firmware for the camera which improves noise levels at higher iso settings was obvious during processing in Lightroom 4 Beta. The lens for the majority of the images was the superb little Olympus 45mm f1.8 which was used wide open.







About Gerry Walden

I am a stock photographer with far more years of experience than I would care to mention. Located in Southampton (UK) I am sandwiched between two national parks and my home town is a major seaport. I shoot mostly people related images, and travel when I can. I am resident photographer at a major concert venue in the town which means I get to shoot a variety of musicians.
