Singer Clare Dussek

Just occasionally, very occasionally, I see somebody that I just feel I have to photograph. This happened recently whilst sitting in a bar/cafe one evening listening to undiscovered talent playing for free. A young voice struggled against the very loud hubbub of the audience whilst playing her electric ukelele. I found her boyish looks and styling attractive so I asked singer Clare Dussek to let me photograph her, and she very kindly agreed.

I shot with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and just the 18-55mm lens on a very bright day utilising the backdrop of a couple of old buildings close to the cafe where I had first seen her, and I am very pleased with the outcome. Highlight control was a little difficult but with judicious use of the sliders in Lightroom 5 everything was fine. Below are couple of examples (who says the X-Pro1 can’t do action?) and you can see the full gallery on this link.

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.
