Now all of these obstacles would normally interfere with a clear shot. But I figured that, rather than try to compensate for all of these elements, why not let them, in fact, guide the camera on its long-exposure shot. The rhythmic doof of the dark psy added its own rhythm on the shot (through the table, and on the hapless tri-pod), dancing the 'subject' across the lens in many cases, and so this movement itself became the photo. The people dancing 'in the way' of the shot became negative space, de-emphasizing elements of the play of light across the lens also, adding their own 'mix' to the shot.
Many of the shots are close-up shots, 'mixed' by the music and the dancers, of the dj booth decorations. A 'clear' shot of the stage can be seen as the final shot, for reference. But the psychedelic effects speak for themselves, and the only alterations that have been made to them, in the colourful psychedelic tradition, is pushing the colour of some of the shots. All else is free of manipulation.
