Samoans – ABC, Glasgow – 26th July 2014

The other night I got to head over to Glasgow’s ABC to hang out with an old friend – Chris Rouse. His band Samoans were supporting the new venture from the previous members of Lostprophets – No Devotion.

I don’t really take pictures of gigs that often anymore, so it was cool to be back lurking about the side of the stage again.

The Leica M8 is all that I had with me, and it’s a fairly different experience to shoot live with a rangefinder. First of all, you need to be a lot more calm and deliberate about everything. Manual focussing in the dark? Say no more.

The shutter of the M8 feels a million times better than any SLR I’ve ever used though, and has a bizarrely calming effect during a gig, which can often feel a bit frantic.
