Jeff Martin...that is all.

So I have been MIA for the last week or so, my place gets uninhabitably hot so we escaped to my parents house, but I'm back and ready to tell you about the amazingness that was last Thursday's Jeff Martin gig.

So this was my first time seeing him in the flesh, and oh my god the man is pure genius! I have never been so enthralled by someone in my life. He draws you in and you forget about everything any everyone for a moment. I directly attribute this as to why I took over 1100 photos almost entirely of just him.
I feel a little bit stalkerish but he shows so much raw emotion when he performs it would be a crime not to capture it.
The general vibe of the whole place was just awesome. There could not have been more than 50 people there so it was incredibly intimate. I have never been to a show where I could lean on the stage with out being crushed up against it, which resulted in some fantastic shots!
I alternated between colour and black & white all night because the lighting wasn't fantastic, but it all worked out ^_^.
I would also like to mention that The Byron Bay Brewery is now my favorite venue/ just place to be.
On that note here are my 10 favorite pictures, it was originally going to be 7 but I couldn't help myself ^_^.

I hope you enjoyed them! All the other photos I took that night are on the Penny Lane photography facebook page just click where it says Penny Lane Photography up the top and it will take you straight to it.
I am also setting up my etsy store this weekend so I will keep you all posted ^_^.
If you are reading this and thinking "who the hell is Jeff Martin?" check out his band The Tea Party they are phenomenal!
Next weeks post will be a surprise! Because I haven't thought of it yet ^_^.
Stay safe! xxx
