The singer/guitar player of a local band called The Liquid Machine. Shot at Doornroosje in Nijmegen, Netherlands. Very happy with this shot, one of my best concert photos probably. It was used for quite a few internet publications.

I envisioned this effect with the stage lighting behind the subject, but it took me quite a few attempts to pull it of, since you can't see a darn thing with that spot shining right into your camera. Miraculously, this shot needed very little editing, just the usual contrast/lens correction/sharpening that I always do. Showcases the quality of the metering system and above all the astonishing dynamic range the K-5 possesses. Best camera I've ever used

This is also my entry for the Ricoh GR giveaway, so here is the Adorama link to the K-5. The lens isn't there anymore, since it has been updated to the 17-50 2.8 OS version.

Well done, not the easiest capture by any means.
