High Voltage

Posted by
CElliottUK (Reading, United Kingdom) on 26 July 2011 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

I was pleased to be asked to be a guest of Primitai, at last weekend's High Voltage Festival.
High Voltage is a medium sized(35,000) people, rock 'n rock gig for those who don't like roughing it. Turn up to a park in London, listen to the music, go home, have shower.
This is an establishing shot of Thunder playing on the main stage

Canon EOS-1D Mark IV 1/8000 second F/2.8 ISO 1600 70 mm

You got the best shot of the show, I would think, the crowd is massive. Plenty of security, you
would need a pass to get by them.

Becky from los angeles, United States

wowsa! That's a lot of humans. Great shot. I get a bit claustrophobic in the middle of these groups. But I like the shot - however you know me... I wouldn't have been able to take this shot - I would have just stood there looking like rather silly while saying something like... "Oh I get it now, you push the black button until it goes click" : ) Ha!
