“This is one my favorite live images featuring Perttu Kivilaakso performing with the Finnish orchestral rock band Apocalyptica. Live music photography is all about capturing 'the moment' under some of the most extreme photographic challenges imaginable. The night this image was captured was like most live music assignments. Three songs, no flash, from the photo pit. Lighting was largely atmospheric in nature with heavy use of fog machines.
“Having captured the requisite individual artist shots, I grabbed my wide zoom in hopes of some full band shots during the third song. To my delight, Perttu approached the front of the stage allowing for one of my favorite uses of the wide zoom in which the artist fills the frame while capturing the stage environment. What makes this photo a favorite is the classic orchestral stance with Perttu's hands and face consumed in the artists personal moment in an environment that leaves no doubt that this was a full on rock show!
“This image was captured with the Nikon D700 and Nikon 14-24 2.8G @ 1/250 F3.2 ISO6400 and looks amazing printed at 48" x 32" by APC.” — Allen
