BIG BAND NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY ST EDMUND'S SCHOOL KENT

The collaboration between St Edmund's School and Kent University was over two performances where the school big band covered the first half, after a brief interval Ian Swatman then conducted the University of Kent's big band with a guest appearance by International singer Louise Cookman who covered some traditional big band numbers incorporating mainstream swing and jazz standards.

One thing photographers always complain about is the lighting and usually that there is not enough of it, the evening performance in the Francis Musgrave arts centre was lit extremely brightly, this meant under exposing the photos and retain detail in the musician and performers skin tones. Also by underexposing it brought down the background which created a much more atmospheric environment for the music photography of the band and Louise Cookman performing.
