Comedy Photography

I'd been invited back by Jan Jack to her regular monthly comedy (Jan Jack's Laughter House) night in Basingstoke.   Shooting comedy in a small club is a tough gig, the lighting is generally low, and of course there's always a chance of being picked on by the comedians (thankfully this has only happened once!).

Joining Jan Jack on stage last night were Danny Dawes, Markus Birdman, Ole and Jez O'Donnell.

For the first time at an event I thought I'd experiment using a monopod (a Manfrotto 694CX if you're interested).  Although it wouldn't be practical to use a monopod at every event, it actually seemed to work rather well here.  I shall definitely be using it again.
