Asking Alexandra / Of Mice & Men @ Dynamo Werk - Zurich

Zurich, 27 April 2011

Possibly the worst lighting I’ve had to deal with in a long time… ISO6400 f/2.8 and plenty of sub-1/100s shutter speeds. All with 1D4 and 16-35mm. Only a handful of barely usable images. I estimate a sum total of 4 lights – 2 red and 2 blue – and often none of them were actually on!

On the plus-side, the atmosphere was great; 200 kids packed into a 10m x 30m cellar with an authentic curved brick ceiling, all totally freaking out with loads of pushing (there was no photo-pit either, by the way) and jumping. Plenty of times the crowd ‘spilled’ onto the 40cm high stage as there was so much energy going on!
