Rock ‘n Roll Silhouettes

At the Will Hoge show last Saturday, the lighting at the 40 Watt in Athens, GA was anti-stellar, so I decided to play around with some silhouettes.  Here are some of my favorite results.  You can check out my entire Will Hoge gallery here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jasonwilliamson/sets/72157602439961780/

On this shot, I absolutely hate the spot light, or “floating white orb”, but removing it made the photo confusing and unbelievable that the subject was lit without actually seeing the light behind it.  I might play some more and see what everyone thinks.

I was going for a softer look with this one, so the slight blur is intentional.  I’ve got an entire gallery of intentionally blurred images, to the point of abstraction without distraction…hmmm…abstraction without distraction…I like that.  That will be a title of something one day.

This one is my favorite.  I upped the blacks and the exposure to give a high-contrast effect and removed a couple of the overhead bright lights (that just looked like a floating white ball at this point).  Aside from that, no other modifications were made.  It’s amazing what you can get with just a few simple lines.
