With their new album ‘Skyforger’ the finnish metalband Amorphis really got another hot iron in the fire. I got to confess, that I love the band. The songs are great, the melodies are great and this evening the sound was amazing. This was just fun. As always Tomi Joutsen was wipping his Dreadlocks all over the stage, but in comparison with the last time I saw them he definitely got the price for the greatest beard of the festival.
During the evening it got a bit harder to shoot the painstage. Do to the fact, that there was little frontlight I had the choice to use a flash to get a little light into the faces of the musicians or just go without it and hope for the guys to look up. I went for both and mixed it up a bit. The Canon 24-70 f2.8 was the lens of choice for the small stage, to get nice wide shots, but you also had the possibility to go to 70mm and get nice headshots. I also put on the 70-200 for some nice close-ups.
