The Vampire Ball in Perth, Western Australia is pure gold for photographers. In 2012 I took some shots that made it on Reddit. These costumes need to be documented. I have been working with a new site perthculture.com. The editor Lisa Rodrigues gets me into some crazy gigs. This one was cheating really.
I had the idea of bringing a bicycle light to uplight the creatures of the night. It worked a treat. Bike lights are insanely bright these days. I used the Moon Sports 'Comet'.
These were all shot on my new Olympus OMD E-M1. I didn't quite ahave my head around it but it was defitely an adventure in new tech.
