Only a few times since I started shooting live music a few years ago have I faced lighting as low as this. It was of course Hallowe’en, and Therapy? were dressed in black (grim reaper style) cloaks and hoods, with face paint. Set against a black backdrop, with hardly any front lighting and harsh backlights and strobes, this was a pretty tricky affair.
The other photographer in the pit was livid at being told to turn off her flash, and I heard her later being denied to return to the photo pit to try and recover something from the event.
Any comments on this shot would be appreciated.
