Brilliant. I so love this photo. The detail is outstanding. Is it to much to ask what type of adjustments you need to get this effect. Brilliant shot again.

Behind The Lens

Location
This picture was taken during the 2014 Copenhell metal festival in Copenhagen, Denmark
Time
Arch Enemy performed late in the afternoon, so there was still a bit of light and I didn't have to push my ISO up.
Lighting
Not much to say about lighting - it was what was on the stage
Equipment
The picture was shot with my Fuji X100S. Maybe not what you'd expect a concert photographer to use, but the camera was my new toy, and I decided to bring it to the festival along withe my Canon equipment. And it turned out that my best picture from the festival (this one) was shot with the Fuji :)
Inspiration
As a concert photographer I try to capture the action and mood in the shows, The front figure in Arch Enemy, Alissa White-Gluz, is a very dynamic and colourful performer, and I knew I should have my eyes on her to catch a great moment - and she didn't let me down.
Editing
Even though there were great colors in this picture, I decided to make it black and white, as I felt it was better suited for what I wanted to bring to the viewers.
In my camera bag
For many years I've been shooting Canon and I still have my Canon gear. But I'm slowly switching to Fuji, and besides the Fuji X100S used for this picture, I now also have a Fuji XT-1 and 3 lenses for that. And I have to say that I enjoy the great performance from the Fuji gear and that I have much less weight to carry.
Feedback
It is probably hard for a photographer in the audience to capture something like this. It was shot from the pit and I don't think I could have done it from the crowd.
