Violent Soho on Film 28-05-09

 Having seen and photographed Violent Soho plenty of times over the last few years and having photographed them recently in The Zoo car park, I took the opportunity to relax from needing to get editorial photos for publication and take a roll of film instead when they supported …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of The Dead at The Zoo (although I having used the roll of film, I did take some digital shots in their last song). 

I used my usual film choice of Ilford HP5 and developed it in Ilford ID-11 for 14 minutes.  The negatives were scanned into Photoshop to do a bit of tidying up; namely using the Heal Tool to remove the worst of the dust, small scratches and any water marks on the negatives.  I also upped the contrast using the Layers and Levels tools to make the images a lot darker and  grittier.  A few more photos on Flickr.
