Roger’s Big Horn
Canon 7D, 135mm, f/4, 1/100s, ISO 1600
Roger Lewis of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band is one of my favourite musicians, but over the years I’ve always struggled to shoot him properly. His cap always seems to get in the way, causing a deep shadow on his face. Fortunately at the DDBB concert at La Batterie in Guyancourt in October he often stood back from his microphone stand, where the shadows were deeper but also more even, which allowed me to capture this picture and a number of others. I played with a B&W version, but the colors are so gorgeous here I thought it looked better that way.
