Artist's Description

Now here is the sort of drummer that is more fun to shoot!

I would have taken lots more pictures of him, except that his fellow band boys kept blocking the way – and the lighting technicians kept blinking those coloured lights to paint him red, orange and other weird colours!

So finally, at just about the very last note of the concert – with all the other musicians standing around him – I managed to peek through and grab this shot which turned out to be the best of the lot!

This dramatic drummer was with a group called Impromptu – allegedly made up of musicians who did not know each other before but got together for the concert – and they performed the night after The poker-faced drummer with Mathilda and the Motherfunkys

“That’s all bluff,” says my drummer friend, pointing out that even the Motherfunkys played some songs that were unrehearsed.

In any case, true to my friend’s theory, this dramatic drummer was no where near as good as the poker-faced one. But as a photographic subject, I’d give up top marks…. if only his other band boys would move out of the way.

BTW: Exposure was 1/50 second, versus 1/25 second in The poker-faced drummer. Still, I captured more movement in this image than in the other. Mr Poker-faced must have been meditating!
