I had the privilege of photographing an alternative music band from Berlin, Germany. Maciej Siedziecki is a musician based in Berlin who also writes and composes film and documentary music. His band produced a somewhat alternative gig in Munich back which attracted a small crowd of alternative music lovers. It was certainly something I have never seen before and introduced me to a form of music that is obviously not common in the general mainstream in Germany.

The pictures came out well and myself and my client were both happy with the results. The lighting was incredibly difficult since the stage was basically black for most of the time. Canon now has ISO levels which can overcome this and through my Dorset Opera stage photography background I was certainly used to such lighting conditions. For those budding amateurs keen to get into band/stage photography or live performance photography then make sure you do your homework first!
