First concert shoot of the year and I had the pleasure to do this for The bianca Story, an independent music band from Basle, Switzerland. They are currently touring representing their new album DIGGER. The singer Elia Rediger is famous for his unconventional dancing moves and knows how to get the people dancing as well. Besides photographing I tried to catch a bit of the energetic performance.
I shoot the photos like I usually do from the first row and so you are definitively part of the show. The stage was really small and reminded me directly at Ampere in Munich where I did shoot Amanda Palmer last year. So this time I was lucky to have a borrowed 17-35mm Zoom with me. It did a great job for capturing some overall impressions which wouldn't be possible with a larger lens. But the lightening was uuurgh.. a real challenge. And I learned quickly to go for the white lights flashing in a sparely way and was mainly concentrated not to miss this moments for triggering.
The opening for The bianca Story was a bit special and anything else but not mainstream. This was a one man show.. no wait.. actually it was a two man show. It was like one guy together with his friend and companion the Inferno, The clever ones of us would say the Inferno is a coffeemaker. But indeed the Inferno is more of a blue flame who is fidgeting to the percussion rhythm, who is rising and then again fading away. Or just is angry and fire-spitting. You dont wanna imagine this on your tongue instead of a tasty coffee. This music band is called Cello Inferno. Its singer is a busker who also comes up with a tuneful banjo just as a home-made guitar. The total sound is astonishing powerful.
Or maybe you have even been at the concert.. Tell me about how you liked the show.
