Concert of Siddharta in Anton Podbevšek Teater

with 5 comments

Anton Podbevšek Teater is one of my favorite clients and photographing theater performances is a real challenge. Last Friday in the theater there was a rock concert with one of best Slovenian rock bands Siddharta. Concert lasted for more then 2,5 hours without stopping. Really cool! Concert photography is not my main kind of photography, but if I’m taking pictures, then I want to do them really good. I’m really pleased with this set of images that I’ve done. Few of them are shot by my wife Alenka Peterlin. I’ll teach about postprocess in Lightroom on my workshop in Ribnica organized by Foto Inkubator on 17.3.2012.

Last week I’ve done pictures for Grimmski band. Thy are my favorite new band from Slovenia. Check their music on myspace and download their album from Grimmski.com. What do you think about their music and of course pictures. I decided to go for saturate colors, shadows, contrasts,… sort of their music sounds like.

Next week I have Dan D to photograph. I must come up with some good ideas. Some suggestions? I’m lingering between white background scene and grunge concrete scene.

Mladina weeklyis a sponsor of Lent festival and they have a stage Mladina, where new fresh bands are introducing themselves. So every year I get this commissions from our marketing department to do portraits of those bands for Striptiz rubric. First two years I was trying hard to explain that Striptiz rubric is really not a place for that kind of introductions and even more against of my concept of reinterpreting PR image of person being portrayed, but it was a waste of time. So now I just do the portrait as another PR image and save some energy.

What I want to say is that the first time I encountered an unknown band that is really cool. I love their music and I’m sure they will be big, really big. Check GRIMMSKI and their myspace site. I love it, but it grew to me only when I listen it in my car and home stereo. Deep bass is necessary to hear. Their album Random Savior is available for free download from their site.

PS: Actually Striptiz rubric is a good place for unknown bands, just I get frustrated because I can not fit them in my concept of Striptiz portraits (my fault) and then I get allergy when I start to read really boring PR text about how many albums they recorded and how long they are playing and then I collapse when I try to read a supereclecticmultiethnicelectronicturborockskunkpankgrungediscoboogie that should present the kind of music they play. I solve that by not reading Striptiz text that is written by bands, but I just listen the music. I didn’t read what Grimmski wrote, but I did listen their record about 38 times.

And I made a mistake, marketing just supplied me with contacts and editorial decision was made beforehand. I don’t find that an important information, but I guess we are all paranoid that marketing is governing our lives.What a ridicules thought!
