Positive Vibration reggae festival in Liverpool - photos from 2021

Published on Wed Sep 15, 2021 by

Fantastic weekend shooting at the Positive Vibration festival here in Liverpool. Highlight for me wasn't an act but a sound rig installed in a club that already has quite a good system ! Hanger 34 hosted the Sinai Soundsystem, which has been rocking the reggae vibes out of Sheffield since 2013. And it ran both days with guest performers and some of their own DJs playing.

It really was one of the most incredible experiences hearing and feeling this system - when running at full pelt it created that full-on body vibration. But without the usual distortion. Reminded me of times spent at Notting Hill Carnival and more recently the better systems in clubs like Fabric, The End and Berghain. Massive respect to Huw and the crew.

Liverpool photographer David J Colbran at the start of a personal project investigating colours and reflections.

Colour reflection experiments

Inspired by some recent colour and reflection experiments when on a holiday in Newcastle, I've had a delve back through my archive and found some nice image contrasts.

Exhibition Stand Photography at Trade Shows and Conferences

I have been photographing exhibition stands for many years and just realised I have never really posted about it before. Perhaps a few images in the end of year review, or as part of a bigger conference job. But I've been commissioned recently by a few stand designers and thought I would write some thoughts and highlight some favourite images from the archive.
