Nneka Live #1

I had to think twice before posting this one as a lot of work has gone into it. First of all inspired by something that Skee put on his photoblog of this same artist. I didn't want to put up something similar or mediocre either. The other reason was that I hadn't done anything creative outside the camera for a while. Maybe I've spent too much time outside Photoshop.

This is a shot from the Nneka Concert at Cargo in London two days ago. For more information on her music visit her myspace page.

This shot might look nicer on the black theme i.e. the black square box at the top left of this page.

Slightly different angle mate. I'd like to see more of the face and all that emotion.
Jide Alakija: Well you're not gonna see more of the face because I don't want you to. :p
