It seems appropriate for the last pictures of the year to be in monochrome. We’ve had to face a lot of hard facts in 2020 and can only hope that 2021 will be kinder to us – a vaccine that will shield a lot of vulnerable people, an end to the interminable wrangling over Brexit and the hope of being able to hug our loved ones sooner rather than later.
Anyway, the pictures. I have very different memories of these two images. Simon was in reflective mood, strumming his guitar and the studio was quiet. I only took about a dozen frames, something I regret but it was nearly at the end of a long session and we were all tired.
Jay, on the other hand, was very upbeat, full of energy and miming to Hold Back the River which was blasting out of the speakers. The lights either side of him were red and blue but, for some reason, I chose to process this one in monochrome. I have hundreds of shots from this session so perhaps I’ll take another look at them in the quiet days ahead.
