Nextfest: Mother Pisslegs (She Shall Be Praised)

Via Flickr:
Erin Gruber ( invited me to come shoot a few pictures for a show she was designing for, Mother Pisslegs (She Shall Be Praised) as part of Nextfest 2012 in Edmonton, AB.

Nextfest has a bit of a contest on, encouraging shutter bugs to take photos during the festival and submit them for inclusion in the 2013 program, with credit. Pretty awesome!

It was a bit of a challenge balancing the exposure of the performer with the projections, and some of the shots I regret locking focus on the screens. Grain was a challenge on my little D40 in such a dim environment, but some of them turned out ok! Here’s the best of the shoot.
