Corpsessed at Semifinal pt.III

f/4 | 1/13 sec | ISO 800

Here is Corpsessed’s guitarist Matti Mäkelä doing his thing at the Semifinal gig. I really like how the lighting works together with his posture on this shot.

    Not sure if this really works like the other shot did, it’s hard to get a sense of what is happening.

      Apparently I can’t edit my comment. I wanted to say that if you could lighten the face more it could work but right now it’s just had to tell what’s happening.

      • Okay. Thanks for the input! It’s always interesting to hear how others view my photographs. I agree that this shot does not even come close to the other shot, but in my eyes the lighting in this photo is just the thing that makes it interesting. As the light only reveals the essential, meaning the silhuette of the guitarist, as the rest remain a “mystery”. Perhaps I like this one more in a kinda artistic sense rather than purely a live music photograph.
