Tony Rees A repository for your music pictures... (47) RE: A repository for your music pictures... 29 Nov 18


Hi Gargoyle (DaveRo), thanks again for your kind comments.

My main regret is that I did not take more pictures, and of more events that I attended, also not having sufficient interest to purchase a better camera in the early days (a time machine would be nice!). However as a poor student, even film/processing was comparatively expensive, at least until I started doing my own black-and-white enlargements (luckily I had access to free darkroom facilities at my place of study, just had to pay for my own paper, plus do it out-of-hours...).

My main interest was listening to the music and enjoying the experience, the odd photo was just a memento (not like today when everyone is a photographer/filmographer and very few events go unrecorded...) Of course I would not have been the only attendee with a camera, especially at festivals where the majority of these shots were taking (much better light than in a gloomy folk club, where I almost never photographed anything), so part of my initial entreaty was to see if more images might be forthcoming from others :)

Since you asked, the images I have put up (apart from recent digital ones) are just scanned from prints in my album, not the negatives (or transparencies in a few cases). The colour ones are without exception just machine prints as received back from the chemist, most quite small i.e. 5x3 inches so would have lost a little detail there, and there would be some additional detail on the negatives, although I do not really have the urge to try to scan these (maybe could revisit for a few special cases though...)

Now if only I had been a serious photographer, I could have ended up with a gallery like this (drool): Photographs by Brian Shuel on Getty Images. But then again, I probably would not be giving them away...

Best - Tony
