Backyard Babies at Kolingsborg, Stockholm. May 18, 2010
The concert for Nikon photographers arranged by Nikon Sweden.
A good one!
Many, many more pics to edit. Iīm going to mix B/W and colourpics, fun to test stuff.
We had free range with our cameras at the concert, the only restriction was that the we arenīt allowed to use the photos commercially. (Like I have ever earned money on my pics, LOL! Well, there was that book cover of course...)
400 Nikon NPU/NPS photographers had tickets for the concert, not sure how many there really were at the end, at least 200-250 I guess. I arrived 20 minutes before the doors opened and ended up at the head of the queu and got a spot right next to the stage and the lead guitarist Dregen. Like 2 meters from him ;o)
Got stuck at that spot when the venue filled up but it was quite OK,loads of pics of Dregen, the lead guitar, the head vocalist Nicke Borg and some of the drummer Peder Carlsson.
Lets say there were a lot of cameras in the way and I wasnīt the tallest one in the venue. Lots of shuffling and pushing from behind, my head used as a monopod and toes stepped on. Same old, same old...
But I got some nice photos. And hey, it was free of charge + I crashed at a friends place and got on the first bus home the next day. I bought a BB T-shirt and snapped 400 photos. Not bad!
And I got a nice, sunny camera walk in Old Town before the gig + met some fellow Nikon Forum members.
It was a very very nice day!
