Second attempt from Hamacting

Hi,

My name is Alan, and I live near Falkirk, in Central Scotland. I have two main hobbies in my life - taking part in amateur musical shows and photography.

Some time ago I thought it would be fun to try combining the two, to take photographs of local amateur musical shows. I would take and process the photographs at dress rehearsal, and sell CDs of the pictures to cast members. I felt comfortable doing this because I had not seen any professional photographer near an amateur show (except the occasional newspaper photog) for around twenty years, so I wouldn't be stepping on anyone's livelihood.

Thus was born StagePics Stage Photography in Central Scotland

It has been great fun - it doesn't make a lot of money but perhaps enough to let me buy the occasional piece of photographic gear without feeling too guilty about it!

Sometimes you have to make the picture, sometimes the set and lighting are so good you just need to point and click:








Not sure where I'll post any more stage photographs I take - "People Pictures", perhaps?

I also have been lucky enough to get to shoot some other fun stuff, such as dancers...


...or face painting...


My new project is one of those "Photo a day for 365 days" things... It's at Project 365 - a set on Flickr and I would love to hear your comments on the photos... It's amazing how hard it's getting to find something new to shoot on my daily lunchtime walk from the office to Asda to buy sandwiches, and I'm less than twenty days into it!

My flickr site is at Flickr: atp's Photostream - it's a bit disorganised, I'm afraid

Looking forward to joining in the discussions!

regards,
Alan

Welcome to Pixalo Alan

That is a very diverse and very nice opening set, but I have had to break the links in all but one as they are oversize for display on Pixalo. Our size limits are no more than 1000 pixels on the longest side and 300kb max file size.

We also do not permit links to personal web sites in posts, so I've removed those links too. You can have up to two links to personal web sites in your signature, accessed via the User CP link on the left hand side of the banner at the top of the page.

Re: Second attempt from Hamacting

Thank you! And Fiona, I think you are right... I reckon you live a little east of me, but I'm not sure how far north...

In fact I came across this forum after following a link to your web site from a photography group in flickr... how's that for complex?

regards,
/alan
