Project Rock-it

Here’s to some oversaturated rock show pictures. Specifically that of Project Bazooka’s, at Laundry Bar, one 21st of September 2006.

Looong exposure, with someone walking past.

Seen a lash? SURE!

Check out the pickguard! Telebury and their jangly indie-pop. The sound does get repetitive after 3 songs featuring those cutesy single-note riffs.

Khai-Lee shows us how to enjoy a rock show; with ease… and slippers.

SingleTrackMind, doing quite a few rock ballad covers.

Solid band, but for some reason did not hit it with the audience.

One Buck Short, a punk rock band I saw the previous Thursday.

Count the frets!

I think I’ve finally honed the gamma levels to look nearly oversaturated, with (darker) dark mids on a CRT monitor at maximum brightness, while looking decently saturated with dark mids looking… dark on a minimum brightness LCD monitor. A compromise between both brightness levels, though technically, my CRT is calibrated properly, and I haven’t figured out how to calibrate correct gamma on the office’s Radeon X300 video cards connected to LCD monitors. Are these pictures too dark/bright for you? Leave a comment.

    An impressive and brilliant blog you have here, Albert. =)

    In my opinion, the pictures are dynamic especially the 6th one. The brightness of the pictures are fine on my CRT monitor by the way.

    Enjoyed reading your blog very much!

    I used to muck with levels to increase contrast. However, increasing the saturation is a much tastier way of giving an illusion of contrast, while isolating different-colored items in a picture.

    I’ll blog about how I killed those dark mids, to avoid them showing up as distasteful JPG compression on LCDs. It also decreases file size. 😀
