Five Photos of a Woman Drummer

A few weeks ago I was walking down Oxford St, heading towards Paddington, when I heard amazing drumming; on getting closer it became apparent that it was a young woman seriously getting her groove on. I headed over for a closer look and then realised that not only was it great drumming, it was a great photo opportunity. Check out her Instagram @ladybananamusic

I was shooting Kodak Ultramax 400 on my old Pentax MX, but it was a really sunny day so I managed to shoot at 1/500 or 1/1000 to freeze (more or less) the action. I really like the way these turned out, and while I didn’t see the bystanders when I was shooting, but they make a couple of these images.
