So, obviously, not every shot can be a winner. While you actively try to minimise the shit shots, you’ll still end up with a whole stack of ‘maybe’ shots along the journey to find those killer shots. They’re not good enough for editorial use, not punchy enough for folio inclusion, and not ‘cool’ enough for the band to want to use them. So they’re inevitably relegated to the hard drive for all eternity, despite the fact that they’re really not that bad. They just don’t fit into a pigeonhole.
I’ve been going through the photos I took during the Next Big Thing band competition, and thought I’d put up a few ‘maybes’ that caught my eye. They all have their faults, but there’s just a little something about each of them (well, I think so anyway!).
