W52 Project 2012 - Miikka Skaffari Music Photography

Korn, The Warfield, San Francisco, 3/4/2012 James "Munky" Shaffer from Korn. This was the only gig I shot the whole week and it was technically very hard. Korn uses very small spotlights and a lot of strobing lights from behind. It was hard to catch a moment when the musicians were light and the back light didn't overpower the shot. One technique I us in this king of situations is to try to hide the background light behind the musicians. This created nice halo's around them and allows me to capture the faces with the little light that is available.
