A couple of weeks ago when shooting Amorphis I decided to try to express my vision a bit more than just shoot the typical fodder of concert photography. Sure, I got my shots of flying hair and finger flying along fretboards, but I also took the time to try and get some more feeling into the shots.
This is one of my definite favorites that I’ve ever taken. I watched Esa hit the whammy bar a couple of times before making this picture and noticed some mannerisms that I could use to get what I wanted. I’m not sure if works quite as well for others, but for me this shot really has feeling in it.
But I still need to ponder quite a bit more on what my vision for photography is and how to express it. And yes, I’ve been reading and listening to David duChemin.
