Shots from Provinssirock festival (2008)
Posted By: f8, 06-23-2008, 06:16 AM

About a week ago I went to Provinssirock festival and had my K20D with me...

Some photos from there:

Finnish progressive metal band, Stam1na:

One Mr. Serj Tankian:


Although these pictures are only to help me remember it all and propably matter to me only, I quite like the way they came out... And in case anyone is curious, all the shots were taken with the Pentax SMC-DA* 50-135mm F/2.8 ED [IF] SDM lense.

Very well done! I absolutely love that first shot. You did a great job considering how unpredictable the lighting can be.

#2 is simply awesome, the composition with the crowd and the light-beams is just poster quality.

Thanks guys!

The lighting really was "a bit of a challenge" from time to time. After some messing with the settings I decided to go fully manual even with focusing - I had the K20D's Live View to help me compose and focus the shots from above the crowd (as I am not one of those guys that stand in the front row taking pictures)! I must have looked quite funny holding my camera up high taking these pictures...

The K20D is truly amazing piece of equipment!!! (And seems it is also festival proofed; neither rain nor mud shall keep me from photographing!)
