Mor & Barn

Mor & BarnA while ago I were asked to make some stills of a theater performance for a friend.

As you know I like doing concert photography when an opportunity comes along, and I approached this session sort of in the same way as I do concerts, but because we didn’t it on a rehearsal day, I could stop the actors and make them “rewind” a little bit, any time I wanted to and get the photo I wanted, and that was very cool, cause opposite concert photography where you have to be alert and ready to capture the right moment in a second – which is also fun – you could take down you camera, sit and watch the actors move around and when you saw something interesting, you just made them stop and “rewind” so you could have a closer look.

It’s defiantly not the last time I’ve done theater photography.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity, Nicolei.

I was atenting the Roskilde Festival 2009, for the first time in 14 years, for that simple reason that Faith No More had reunited and gone on tour, and they where playing on the biggest festival in Denmark – Roskilde – and I just had to go.
I ended up having a real good time, the weather was perfect – sun and no rain at all – i’m not that much of a music buff, so in order to finde/listen to some new music, I hooked up with some friends who are, and they took me to the Marnie Stern gig (her myspace page), and what a gig. It’s a trio, Marine on guitar and vokal, a male drummer, and this lovely lady who’s name is Malia James on bass guitar. Thanks guys for taking me!

Well this photo is made with my Casio EX-FC100 pocket camera (didn’t want to bring the whole photo shubang to a rock festival), I converted it to black and white in Photoshop, where I also added quiet a bit of sharpen, cause of the low light it was a bit blurry.
