“It was a challenging shoot due to the huge light show which varied in intensity greatly but very exciting. I spotted the crowd surfer and thought it would add some drama to the shot.”
Gear: Canon 5d Mark iii with Canon 70mm – 200mm F2.8 L Series lens.
Post Process: A little sharpening and shadows opened right up with a fair amount of blacks added giving a nice highlight around the heads of the crowd.

I started shooting live bands many years ago with a small point and shoot Lumix and slowly upgraded to the professional equipment I have now. I shoot for Amnplify as well as just for myself when out seeing bands with my partner and friends. Love shooting musicians of all kinds.Learn more about John De Haan
