Sometimes when I am shooting something pretty serious I manage to spot an image which is totally unexpected. Call it luck, call it what you will, but to pass the opportunity would be wrong.
So there I was shooting for a very serious event at the Music Faculty of Southampton University. The shoot took the form of rehearsal/soundcheck followed by concert for general sots and a question and answer session afterwards. No problem at all, I have done similar work in the same venue countless times and I know the people well. All was well, and then suddenly during the student Q&A session I spot this image. A guy had bought a silvery white cello case into the auditorium and sat in next to him just as if it was listening to the session. I HAD MY IMAGE! Converting it to black and white gave me what I was looking for, and produced a bit of fun. The cello case was sat there just like an alien from Roswell – I hope you agree.
